The design for this Man Booker Prize binding is based on abstracted versions
of four images representing pivotal episodes within the narrative. Three
images read across the whole binding in chronological order: Edward and Florence’s
first meeting, the honeymoon bed, and their consequential parting on Chesil
The fourth image is for the reader to find.
