Rainbow Punch is a lockdown legacy like no other. An anthology of 25 mixed-genre writings from 19
women, each with its own evocative illustration from one of six incredible female artists.
Throughout the pandemic, drawing rainbows became a global phenomenon and this sign of hope
unites each piece in the anthology. Whether representing togetherness, self-determination or
kindness, this collection also recognises those left with a legacy of struggles – including the 1.3
million people living with long Covid – and seeks to celebrate the continued strength within all of us.
Rainbow Punch showcases wide perspectives from twelve different countries, from motherhood
across the ages, to dedicated healthcare workers, bereaved friends and fantastical imaginings. This
book is a spectacular tribute to our tenacity in difficult times and documents a landmark moment in
shared global culture. It is a must-have on every bookshelf, ready for the time all pandemic babies
ask the inevitable question – what was life like when I was born?
