Project Description

This illustration was created for the cover of Botulinum Neurotoxin for Head and Neck Disorders 2nd Edition textbook. Its purpose is to serve as an attractive and compelling visual summary of the entire book to grab the reader’s attention. The anatomy in the illustration such as the frontalis, parotid gland, larynx, thyroid gland and trigeminal nerve are main injection sites of Botulinum Neurotoxin discussed within the text. A vial and a syringe are in the background to represent and emphasize the use of this therapy in the head and neck. The importance of representation of Black people on textbook covers was considered in the design of this cover which features a Black woman.
