Love The Cover, Julia Lawrinson

I love the cover of Julia Lawrinson's The Push. Anyone agree with me on this one? The illustration is great... I think I have some art by the artist from a magazine. I don't remember her name though, I'll have to go hunting through a lot of back-issues of Frankie magazine to find it. Also, I love the font, the colours and the layout in general. Great cover!

From the author's website:

'Is she - was she with Johnno?' said Erica.

'It doesn't work like that,' Trish said. 'Not like boyfriend and girlfriend stuff, as I've been trying to tell you. It's more - fluid.'

Erica is restless for a life outside her office job, her boring boyfriend and her mother's tiny house in down-and-out Glebe.

In the 1950s, Sydney is quickly building a reputation for sinfulness, and some of the most attractively sinful people are to be found in a group known as the Push. They meet regularly to discuss their wicked ideas at the Royal George, and Erica is drawn into the captivating crowd.

I haven't read it.. but Allie has. She reviewed it here. Sounds really interesting though.. have you read it? Probably not actually because I'm pretty sure it's only available in Australia. Pity! We can all appreciate the cover art, though :)


  1. Thanks for the shout out Lisa! :D I LOVE the cover on this one. It was what made me entially pick it up.

  2. Hehe no worries Allie :) It would have been hard to resist a book with such a pretty cover!

  3. Hi Lisa
    Just want to let you know that the illustration is by Eveline Tarunadjaja (

  4. This book has been on my Goodreads to-read shelf for a while. I was not paying attention to the release date every time I looked for it in the bookstore! Haha! I have to wait even longer than I thought to read this, I guess. But damn. Awesome cover!
