Book Covers for Crystal Wood

Original Illustration
by James Hobdy;
composition and typography by Crystal Wood.

The illustration is acrylic on canvas, and is based on a medieval stained glass window found in a reference work on heraldry. Jim added the particular blazon of the coats-of-arms mentioned in the story, as well as the whimsical cowboy hat and other Texas imagery. The spine and back cover are black, and the back cover copy is in a block of the same "stained glass" as on the front.

The brilliant watercolor illustration wraps around to the back; a white center panel contains the back cover copy and barcode. Note the white bars at top and bottom that add an unusal touch to the colorful illustration.
