The Handmaid's Tale Book Cover

Many book covers for The Handmaid's Tale focus on the conservative clothing of the Handmaids, which tends to evoke a remote historical era or far-off locale rather than the contemporary, North American setting of the novel. This cover attempts to convey the same sense of constraint and subservience that is embodied in the Handmaid's dress, while keeping the story closer to home.
