Cover Art: The Rebirth of Rapunzel

IMG_8807

Boxes of books have arrived at my house! A delivery for Fablecroft Publishing for Contact2016 (the national convention, this weekend).

This is the cover, with my art, for Kate Forsyth‘s The Rebirth of Rapunzel, the PhD exegesis which accompanied her novel Bitter Greens. It will be launched at Contact, here in Brisbane, this weekend.

Both the main and background illustrations are originally scratchboard designs. Here’s a progress shot.

We were going for an old-school pamphlet/midcentury letterpress poetry vibe, and I really like the font Fablecroft chose.
