A lazy post...Some covers from our Fall 2008 catalog, which just came in....The red covers.ARTISTS:Edge: Gustave DoréSummer: Raymond SwanlandAutumn: Stephan MartiniereMars: John Harris
Those are pretty cool although i think the summer palace is out of place with the background image. Is that the font and color for the series? Not sure, but i don't think it fits with the image, 2 different styles, plus the color is a bit off. The autumn war looks nice from afar would like to see it close up.
I also think the fonts should not detract from the background paintings, it might be interesting if a publisher focused on showing off the art and intention of the story through the cover rather than spotlight the title which seems to take up most of the page.(although i know you are trying to sell books, i think this approach is heavy handed.
I'm intrigued by the cover of "Mars Life" & would also be interested in seeing it up close & personal. I'll have to poke around the local bookstore for it.
These images are all bigger when I put them into Photobucket – there is something I’m not getting right about file sizes. Hmmm...Todd - It all depends on which market the books are going for. Some books can get away (from a Sales POV) with more subtle type designs and other can’t.
Irene; It's okay...I'm sure I can find a larger version elsewhere. ;)
Hi Irene,I know I should probably know, but since I don't could you post who did which covers? That would be swell.Thanks,--Drew
Irene - Who were the artists for each of those paintings? Thanks!Howard
Each and every John Harris painting that graces the cover of a Ben Bova book just gets better and better. I have no idea why the idea of reading those books intimidates me, but I hover over them every time I see one in the bookstore.
I understand, thanks Irene that makes sense.
Were the artist credits edited in, or am I just less blind in the middle of the afternoon? Thanks, either way.
You commissioned Albrecht Durer? I have to step it up a notch then, but the Vermeer studio doesn't seem to have an email address or phone number. Delft, here I come...
Drew - you;re not dreaming. I added them in this morning. Thanks for reminding me. I was being a lazy ass.Mathew - Thanks for stopping by! Yeah, me and Al go way back. Next up, I want to get that guy that does those nice horse drawings in french caves.
