At Stanfords bookshop, we are globe trotting my book cover designs.
In Iceland, there are copies of Moonstone by Sjón. This is illustrated by the wonderfully talented Owen Gent.
Moonstone is also proudly part of The Best of European Literature display.
In Switzerland, there are multiple copies of The Gilded Chalet by Padraig Rooney displayed facing out in all its glory. The portraits of Byron, Mary Shelley and James Joyce are illustrated by the speedy and super talented Alan Vest. Alan also illustrates author portraits regularly for The Guardian, so it was great to have him on board with this project.
In Russia, two of the Irina Ratushinskaya fiction collection is spotted: Grey is the Colour of Hope and In the Beginning.
And among the Middle East and Central Asia section, The Lovers by Rod Nordland paperback edition sits beautifully.
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.
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!
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.
