Evolution of a Book Cover
It starts with a story. An idea, words on a page.
The words unfold, revealing characters, settings, moods. And then, a bit like being put to music, the words get put to pictures. Different styles are explored, and certain elements are established that will express the essence of an entire book. A few renditions later, author and artist in sync, a cover is made.
This is Sam Moffie’s fifth novel; publish date forthcoming. Book cover designs @Patricia Saxton.
