My various book cover designs are out and about on patterned bookshop shelves. I spotted my Moonstone HB cover at Waterstones Tottenham Court Road in prime position.
Moonstone was also displayed at Daunt Books by the entrance book shelves.
It was in good company with my Harmless Like You HB cover not too far away.
And this beauty of a cover, When the Floods Came PB edition was out on the table display.
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!
Moonstone is featured in The Bookseller (29th April) with an image of my book cover design.
‘It will no doubt find a place alongside Karl Ove Knausgård in the hearts of literary hipsters everywhere.’
Just some quotes from Moonstone below, I’m looking forward to getting my hands on the printed copy of the book.
Hurrah!! Moonstone has been made into an animated version.
Marketing have done a great job with the Moonstone proofs based on my book cover design. Beautiful translucent paper is wrapped around the cover.
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.
