As someone with the artistic capabilities of a roll-top desk, I am always amazed when other people can create visually glorious things. And into the category falls the cover for “The Man in the Canary Waistcoat”, which was finalised today. Feast your eyes:
Isn’t it just too gorgeous? It echoes the main features of the cover of “Fatal Forgery”, as you can see:
So this creates the feeling of a related series, while “building the brand”. The cover designer suggested the tagline across the top (“A Sam Plank mystery”) and the use of one of my lovely reviews at the bottom. I am simply delighted, and particularly like the new colour – strong yet somehow vintage rather than modern.
