A quick snap of some large posters at work with my Moonstone book cover. Quotes by David Mitchell and Junot Diaz. The actual printed copy of the book looks even more beautiful and is available to purchase on the 2nd June 2016!

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.
