Sor Juana Inés de La Cruz led an inspiring, albeit ultimately tragic, life that was immortalized in her biographies. She is celebrated for holding such progressive views on women & feminism that challenge even the ideals still held today. 
She was expected to be pure, clean, uneducated, and plain. This is her cover: a minimal, unremarkable jacket reflecting who she was supposed to be on the outside. 

However, there are glimmers of what is underneath her facade in the cutouts of her name. When the jacket is removed, highly stylized portraits of Juana are revealed. On the front, her at her truest. Highly curious, confident, and unafraid. 

On the back, an allusion to how her life ended. Though, to find out exactly how it went from one cover to the other, one might want to read the biography.
