Each book that we design goes through multiple cover explorations and rounds of refinement before we ultimately land on a final cover. We solicit feedback from our editors, sales and marketing team, fellow designers, and of course, the author. We edit and refine each round in the hopes of developing the best cover possible. Here’s a behind-the-scenes look at the cover development process for our newly published book, Artists, Writers, Thinkers, Dreamers: Portraits of 50 Famous Folks & All Their Weird Stuff, by James Gulliver Hancock.

We featured another post about the book for Steinbeck’s birthday in February, but I happened upon this map just yesterday. I had no idea it was here! New discoveries every day in the Map Collection.

New Goodreads illustration!  I enjoyed working with the limited palette, and always love painting books. Thanks Jade Change for the direction!
There is supposedly a downloadable poster version they’ll be releasing as well, so keep and eye on their site, if you’re a teacher or librarian or someone who likes books. 
Also, Happy National Library Week!
Oh I love libraries.
