I LOVE This!
One of the biggest reasons that I started this blog was to puzzle over art director choices for book covers. I love Chad Beckerman’s blog for that. He gives background and reasons for some of the covers he directs – see this post. It is so so enlightening to get a peek into the process. Thanks to Chad. And if there are other publishers’ art directors out in the blogosphere doing these, please point them out in the comments!
