I’m very excited to reveal these two covers from Corella Press for their first two editions of 19th century Australian crime and mystery.

The original designs (covers and logo) were, of course, cut-paper silhouettes, and very fiddly and gratifying they were!

These two will be launched at Avid Reader in Brisbane on 30 August 2019. The launch is free, and if you’d like to come, you can register here: https://avidreader.com.au/events/corella-press-historical-australian-crime-and-mystery

I’m very delighted to be involved with the cover designs for the first books of this new teaching press at UQ: Corella Press.

Corella Press is a not-for-profit small press committed to making beautiful, collectable editions of recovered Australian nineteenth-century crime and mystery stories.

Corella Press launches with Bridget’s Locket and Other Mysteries by ‘Waif Wander’ (Mary Helena Fortune). This triptych of works by a premier Australian crime writer of the nineteenth century includes Dora Carleton: A Tale of Australia, a novella published for the first time since 1866.

I will reveal more as I can. In the meantime, here is a teaser:
