Coming this spring, The Guns of Ivrea by Clifford Beal. I did the jacket artwork for this the first in a new series of adventure on the open seas, filled with privateers, mermen, magic monks, and mythic beasts. See more about the novel here.
Originally the book was titled Valdur – The Guns of Ivrea, for which I personally crafted the typography. I did this to be sure the religious thread of the story would be present on the cover, captured in the manuscript style lettering. But the editors decided to knock off Valdur and with it my ornamentation, seen here-
In any event, it’s a captivating novel that I’m proud to have worked on. I’m looking forward to getting started on the next in the series.
