Thomas Hawkins at South Kensington

My noose illustration from The Last Confessions of Thomas Hawkins hardback jacket design is used for the paperback poster. (The paperback cover is not my design.) I spotted this at South Kensington station on my way home from the Natural History Museum.

Katherine, Anya Seton

This book is part of a redesign of 10 backlist titles (Avalon, Devil Water, Dragonwyck, Foxfire, Green Darkness, The Hearth & Eagle, Katherine, My Theodosia, The Turquoise, The Winthrop Woman). All are ebooks and most have been made into paperbacks too. The main thing the new designs had to achieve is to provide a fresh look for a classic author and to appeal to both romance and historical readers.
