The First Cover Options
April 4, 2018
Continuing our discussion of How A Cover Gets Made and our cover-design contest (see http://lmelliott.com/lauras-blog/how-cover-gets-made/ )
Cover designer Sarah Pierson’s first thoughts were to create these wonderful silhouette images, which anticipate her final and official cover design. I was a little concerned the second option could be misinterpreted that Peggy had a romance with Hamilton. So, as elegant and intriguing as it was, we eliminated that choice. Come back Friday to see more of Sarah’s initial designs!
Through April 12th, I will be posting all the cover ideas HarperCollins' creative team came up with before we fell in love with the final cover you all know! And I want YOU to participate in the fun for a chance to win a copy of the book and to let others see your design talents!
