THE THIRD COVER OPTIONS
Continuing our discussion of How A Cover Gets Made and our cover-design contest (see /lauras-blog/how-cover-gets-made/ )
Before I show you the model we ultimately concentrated on, (Tuesday’s blog!), I’d like to share these alternative photographs, all taken by and copyright of photographer Richard Jenkins http://rjenkins.co.uk/
These poses touch upon many things in PEGGY’s narrative: how well-educated she was and what a book-lover; how her family’s library was very much “the room where it happened” in terms of her father’s espionage, counter-intelligence, and spy-ring; the importance of letters in the 18th century; and the family lore of Peggy dashing along the mansion’s exquisite staircase into the fray of a kidnapping attempt of her father to save her baby sister.
You’ll notice that designer Sarah Pierson went back and forth about whether to include an 18th century style silhouette cameo of Hamilton with his name.
