Whitechapel mural kicks off Rubenhold paperback campaign

Penguin Random House launched a new campaign for the paperback release of Hallie Rubenhold's The Five: The Untold Lives of the Women Killed by Jack the Ripper with a distinctive mural in Whitechapel. 

The book aims to recognise the five women killed by Jack the Ripper in 1888. With the “they were more than just headlines” campaign, the five women have been portrayed in a mural on the corner of Ebor Street and Redchurch Street, Whitechapel which can be seen until 18th February. 

Rubenhold has started a new campaign to make the mural a permanent fixture. 

She said: "It's amazing to see the womens' faces here. It feels right."

The Five was released on 30th January, and in two weeks already became a Sunday Times bestseller and Waterstone’s February non-fiction book of the month.
