The Making of Gabriel Davenport Book Cover

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.

    Everything about this much-anticipated book – words, artwork, design, website – is clearly done with heart as well as style. A magnetic combination. Well done, Bev, on being true to yourself, and to Gabriel.
