The design and colour are to represent stillness and seclusion of Dickinson's life and to emphasise her idiosyncrasy by directly using the dashes from the poems. Dickinson's unconventional use of dashes has been a great source of debate for interpretation to understand her poetry and it was heavily edited to conform to the norms of the time in her earlier editions. The manuscripts for all the poems in the book were studied and all the words are erased except dashes. Then all the pages are overlaid on top to create the design.
