The monthly challenge continues with the next two books in the series.
If you haven’t noticed by now, the covers for each pair of books are designed as a diptych. The idea is that you’d line each pair up side by side in your ereader library.
Of course, you don’t have to do that if you don’t want to. :-)
I’ve also updated the first two with a slightly tweaked stylesheet (should look better now in apps such as Aldiko, Readmill, or Bluefire) and a fix for a very embarrassing error in my automatic smartypants quotes converter.
Four of the fourteen books are out.
I need to get Jenný to blog about her process for illustrating these covers. A lot of thought, sketching, and experimentation has gone into making sure they work both as regular covers (displayed large) and ebook covers (displayed small in your library).
Hint hint, Jenný. :-)
Which reminds me: every illustration you see on this site, on the Heartpunk site, or in the OZ Reading Club is available as a print as well. Covers, illustrations, you name it. Just email the illustrator, Jenný, at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
Also, Jenný is hungry for feedback and comments on the illustrations. If you don’t feel like writing a comment then you can email her instead. (She’ll hate me for having written this but what else are meddling older brothers for? :-P)
