One of my rejected cover designs for the trade paperback repackage of Between Shades of Gray. I was really hopeful that this set (there were several other versions with this image) would make the cut, but no such luck.
I went through a whopping five rounds of comps (which I plan to post soon) for this cover. Two and a half months of late night designing later, it is finally completed and approved.
I’m pleased with it—and I still find it unbelievable that I was given the chance to design for Anderson, who I read while I was in high school (this title included, by strange coincidence!).
Fragmented typography for a “fragmented” title.

Another visual tactility success.

I can’t say enough how much I adore this cover. The typographical treatments are a perfect match, and the attention to detail in adding silver foil to the individual stars is beyond fantastic. If you haven’t seen it in person, make it a point to do so the next time you hit the bookstore.
