CoDex 1962 Featured in The Casual Optimist

My CoDex 1962 book cover, illustrated by Owen Gent, was featured in The Casual Optimist as part of Book Covers of Note September 2018. Not actually published in September but was mentioned as the American cover was picked out too.

Bookshop in July 2018

Some of my book cover designs spotted standing tall at various bookshops.

Owen Gent was the illustrator of Sjón’s previous novel, Moonstone. And it was great to team up with him again for CoDex 1962. He has done a fantastic job of developing my concept and design forwards. As always using delicious colour combinations! The below photo is from Foyles in Stratford.

Record of a Spaceborn Few with its colourful starry sky, is also in Foyles. This book has recently become The Sunday Times UK top ten bestseller!

The sunny weather and ice cream season requires a good looking summery cover. As demonstrated by the lovely book, The Beginning of the World in the Middle of the Night PB.

The vibrant yellow paperback of In Every Moment We Are Still Alive is in Liverpool Street station’s Pocket Shop.

Sjón Reads Moonstone!

Last week we had the pleasure of listening to Sjón the author of Moonstone read an extract from his book. And it was really nice to see my book cover design all lined up in the background too. Hurrahs!!

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.’
