Book Covers for Bloomsbury
For the last couple of years I have been working with Kate Clarke, Senior Designer at Bloomsbury Childrens Books on a series of book covers for kids/tween author Sue Limb.  I've also worked with Kate on a couple of covers by author Elen Caldecott (see Kirsty Jenkins jacket design below), and she's both lovely to work with and a great designer to boot!
The first cover I did for Bloomsbury, working with Kate. This was really fun design to work on, especially as it ended up being quite a bit different from the Art Dept's orginal idea.

All Eight SUE LIMB covers together. The Camera doesn't really pick up all the foil accents.
Kate Clarke did a lovely job of the spines!

The eighth book of the series came out this month so I thought it was a wrap.  But instead I just learned that there is to be a ninth which is unexpected by still good news :-)
Additionally, I'm also currently busy re-doing some of the lettering for some French editions... which can be challenging when the length and wording of the title is sometimes very different to the original design!
