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.

    I love, love, love the cover. Beverley, it’s so brilliant, minimalistic but with so much on, it swells with meaning. The font is absolutely amazing. 😀

    This is phenomenal. I cannot wait to read this. “One night. One secret.” Sold! Great work, Beverly. You have a fan here in Virginia-U.S.A.

    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.

    Just beautiful Beverley. Is there a teeny tiny spot of blood too? I cannot wait to read The Making Of Gabriel Davenport.

  5. The cover is simply splendid! The drawing, the colours, the font, the words. This is a cover I get drawn to. Very professional. The cover of a best-seller. 😀

  6. What a stunning cover! Such a beautiful font. I enjoyed reading through several of your blog posts tonight! 🙂

  7. This cover is amazing. That little red spot has me wondering and making me love it more. I’m waiting for this book to be part of my personal library.
