"A Handful of Dust" by Evelyn Waugh follows the tragic and satirical story of the Lasts, a family whose seemingly good life quickly takes a turn and falls apart. Waugh highlights the misfortunes that can occur for those who are wealthy in a both serious and laughable manner. This book jacket was designed to represent the instability and deterioration that is seen within the family throughout the novel, and to show that not all shiny things can last.
