Babe Walker, in the book Psychos, is an LA fashionista and socialite who comes across as chic, fabulous, and put together on the outside. However, Babe has a crazy alter ego named Babette who is attention-seeking, dark, and reckless — causing mayhem wherever she goes. Both of the main character's personalities are represented in this reversible book cover. Throughout the story, Babe has a mysterious stalker who sends her threatening messages written in black lipstick. This inspired the idea to incorporate lipstick texture and elements into the design.
