Behind the Cover of Peter Nimble …


Recently, both my designer and cover artist have posted blog pieces talking about the process of making the Peter Nimble cover.   Illustrator Gilbert Ford walks through the process on his blog, including showing an early idea for a die-cut cover with psychedelic eyes!  Abrams designer Chad Beckerman continues the conversation, talking not only about the illustration ideas, but also the process behind settling on a typeface and selecting paper/foil for the hardcover casing — definitely worth checking out!

    Thanks! Can’t wait to show my students the revision process through the lens of a cover designer.

    I’m putting your book down for just a second so I can tell you how much I’m enjoying it!! I just met Asher and Jude, I heard those boys made an appearance.

    In Brazil, it’s different. It has the town but without the Peter’s shadow between the houses and the birds
