Ear to the Wall by Carrie Causey, cover & interior illustrations by Amy Crook

Ear to the Wall by Carrie Causey,
cover & interior illustrations by Amy Crook

It was over 2 years ago that I posted my Victorian Wallpaper design, with all its scribbly whimsy. Recently Google brought the post to Jason from Ampersand Books, and he wrote to me asking to use the art for the cover & interior of one of their little poetry chapbooks. They went with a gorgeously intense (and hard to photograph!) red and blue for the cover, with faded greys inside and pure black and white in the inside covers.

I haven’t had time to read any of the poetry yet, but the book itself is very cool looking, in my totally biased opinion. Sherlock seems to find the titles intriguing, anyway!

Above you can see the rich color and linen texture of the printed cover art, with my tiny skulls still just visible in the design. You can get your own copy of Ear to the Wall by Carrie Causey here at Ampersand Books.

      Thanks, Debbie! I’m really happy with the way the designer presented the art, from the lovely glowing colors on the front to the extra interior spots.
