The Anatomy of a Book Cover

June 29, 2012

Irene Langholm recently re-envisioned the book cover for After The Virus and the amount of work she put into it was crazy and amazing at the same time. So I thought you all might like to see what an artist does when pitched a basic plot from an author … through concept … to completion.

I am absolutely infatuated with the finished product, BTW (in case there was any lingering doubt). Click the image to get a closer look:
