This dust jacket is inspired by imagery from the medieval era and the Arts and Crafts movement, with elaborate filigrees and transitional typefaces. The Philosopher typeface resembles historical typefaces through characteristics commonly used during the Middle Ages. On the front cover, a captivating illustration draws the eye through the depiction of a young girl sporting a bruise while wielding a spear. Throughout the novel, she undergoes strenuous training and single-handedly fights against injustices from older trainees, resulting in many wounds, bruises, and scratches. The juxtaposition of rich golden hues against a textured deep violet backdrop invoke royal associations, as the heroine aims to become a knight for her kingdom. She slowly gains allies along the way, first of which being an intelligent sparrow, as well as a mysterious benefactor who secretly gifts her a valuable dagger.
