The Italian cover


I am thrilled with the jacket for the Italian translation of The Lantern, to be published in July by Piemme. It's a beautiful piece of artwork that captures the haunting romanticism of the book. There's a change of title too, to The House of Wind and Shadow, which is quite intriguing.

As soon as I saw the design it reminded me of Lynne Ciacco's work, especially City Lupins, pictured below.


I wrote a couple of blog posts last year about Lynne and her work, which I admire greatly for the sheer variety of experimental styles and the atmosphere and thoughtful playfulness she achieves. You can link to them here:

This is a beautiful cover. I like how the different countries have a different visual interpretation of your book and that every cover is different. It's very interesting.

Hi there, thanks for stopping by my blog! I've also loved looking at all the different interpretations of each country with regard to your covers. I discovered the Literary blog hop a few months ago and have found the questions asked very thought provoking, so I definitely hope to see you hopping through as well. :)
