Bookshop in May 2017

I went books shopping and spotted in the Foyle’s window display These Dividing Walls hardback I designed.

It was also a part of the new titles special promotion display inside the store.

Harmless Like You paperback makes an appearance.

The hardback is also a part of the front of store display.

Harmless Like You Paperback Edition

I have designed a new cover for the paperback edition of Harmless Like You. I am really pleased with the outcome and the book is an amazing read. In the past 1960s narrative, a Japanese girl has an ambition to be an artist, in the present day narrative her son is dealing with his feelings from his mother’s abandonment. I love how each chapter beginning, beautifully describes a different colour of paint that sets a particular mood. You can read examples of this on my Quotes page.

Bookshop in August 2016

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.
