Moonstone, Sjón

See below my book cover design for Moonstone by Sjón. The art direction was to create an atmospheric, powerful and literary cover image. Aiming for a more allusive/abstract look rather than to be overly detailed. I commissioned Owen Gent to illustrate an Icelandic mountain landscape with a silhouetted figure looking out into the distance. The illustration has great use of muted colours that is suggestive of a dream like state of mind. Therefore, this links with the idea of the main character’s imagination interweaving with reality.

Collected Memoirs, Alan Titchmarsh

I designed the ebook bundle for Alan Titchmarsh’s Collected Memoirs. This needed to keep with the author branding of previous titles.
