I thought you might like to watch a book cover being born, right from the first idea and the initial sketch.
I told my cover artist, Nick Saltmer, that I was making a collection of all the recipes in the Old Fools series, putting them together in a separate recipe book.
As I have LOVED all the designs Nick has created for my Old Fools and Sixpenny Cross series, I asked him if he could create one for TWO OLD FOOLS IN THE KITCHEN.
“Of course I can,” he said. “I’ll have a think and get back to you. Maybe a Spanish scene, table and chairs, some chickens, that sort of thing?”
“That sounds perfect!” I said.
“Great, I’ll set to work.”
It’s always exciting to see what Nick comes up with and, as usual, I wasn’t disappointed!
Here’s the first sketch for the book cover of “TOF in the Kitchen”.
I love it!
