Time for another cover recreation…this one was easy: The Thief, by Megan Whalen Turner.
What I used: old competition medal, blue clay, plastic bead and string.
Let us know if you have ideas for future covershoots. Some books are more feasible than others (ie Everything On a Waffle in all its flying food glory would be difficult), but we will try our best.
New project: we’re turning cover art into photographic art, one book at a time. We’ll keep the Photoshop to a minimum because we don’t believe in airbrushing!
First up: Make Way for Ducklings
What we used: nine stuffed/glass/ceramic ducks and a green sleeping bag.
Bonus: our homage to the duckling statues in the Boston Commons (in sepia!)
