Pretty book covers forthcoming

I want to post pictures, but I can't. Not yet. Mainly because they don't quite exist at this point in time -- but they soon shall!

Met with my artist buddy, Nancy Zack, at the book store today, to discuss the cover of our 'art-project' book, ELFHAME. We looked at a crap-ton of covers, and were very inspired, and had some amazing ideas, and I'll bet that even as I'm typing, she's stylus-ing away on her fancy-shmancy, computerized art-pad. She sent me a few mock-ups last week -- and they were awesome! -- and now that she's working on juggling the different elements we saw today, I'm sure it's only getting awesome-ier! (I'm usually very sparing with excalmation points, so, you should be able to tell that I'm pretty excited about this)

I'm sure we'll end up with four or five variations, and with her permission, I'll probably post them and see what y'all think of the different parts. Because that would also be awesome.

Hi Ray--Are you epublishing?

Ray Veen said...

Yeah, but only this one. It's my favorite book from my pre-agent days, and he wasn't interested in repping it, so I recruited Nancy to help me put it out there -- purely for the artistry of it.

More for friends and family than the greater, whole of the planet.
