Everything That Rises Must Converge Book Cover

  • This is a book cover I designed for Flannery O'Connor's short story Everything That Rises Must Converge. The story is about racial tension in the south. The title was inspired by the French philosopher Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, who once wrote: Remain true to yourself, but move ever upward toward greater consciousness and greater love! At the summit you will find yourselves united with all those who, from every direction, have made the same ascent. For everything that rises must converge.
