After a gestation period of 13 months, this week finally saw the unveiling of the long awaited cover to The Making of Gabriel Davenport!
I couldn’t be more pleased with the result, *hand drawn* by the very talented Maria Elena Maxwell. From the very beginning I wanted broken wings, to highlight Gabriel’s struggle. I wanted different shades of light to symbolise the fine line between darkness and light, and that blurred line inbetween where things hover in a lost place. And I wanted simplicity.
The font I am in love with! From the arched A and the gothic T to the whole feel of the letters – they whisper of the happenings on that one night, where one secret threatens to destroy everything Gabriel holds dear, including his fragile hold on reality.
