It’s Here!

I’ve touched it.  The book.  It’s here!  Chronicle sent an advance copy and boy howdy is it purty.  (The note they tucked into it says “TA DA!”)

I can't quite believe it's real

One of my favorite features is the “dissected painting” — based on old medical books where you’d lift the paper “skin” flap to see the muscles, then lift that to see the organs, etc.  This one shows the sketch of the painting, the underpainting and the final finished piece.  (If you’re paying attention you’ll see the wolf prince was originally going to be sitting in/leaning on some kind of chair/throne which I’d originally thought would have a carved wolfy-gargoyle on it, but it kinda shifted as I was painting to be a live wolf and moved outdoors.)

In production we called this "the flappy thing".

Aaaaand the postcard book, which is just gorgeously packaged (I can compliment that part freely since I had nothing to do with it, it’s all the delicious design work of Catherine Head).

The outsides...

Much much much glossy goodness all around.
