Bookshop in February 2017

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.
