Day 1: The Four Days of Ford

Not quite the Twelve Days of Christmas, but hopefully, a festive occasion you'll enjoy all the same. I've been obsessing over a particular cover job for a while now, and it's now completed. I'll unveil my finished work over the next four days here on the blog.

Next fall, Golden Gryphon Press will release Jeffrey Ford's THE WELL-BUILT CITY trilogy in spiffy new trade paperbacks. Here's the front cover illo for Ford's MEMORANDA. Materials: Oil painting / hourglass / gears / bird / acrylic / ink / wood /found objects / hand-built assemblage / no digital. More tomorrow....

Thanks, Andy! I think THE PHYSIOGNOMY releases in October 2008. I'll definitely have more about the release dates on these as I hear them. Happy Holidays to you!
