The Book Thief is set in Nazi Germany and follows Liesel Meminger, an orphan girl with a love for books, as she grows up in her Jew-sympathetic foster home during World War II. The cover captures her journey with strokes of ink on a basement wall and colors that served as both markers of significant change in Liesel's life and constant reminders of the totalitarian regime bearing down upon her.
