The Strange Adventures of Mavis Street book cover
Posted 2 years ago and submitted by Marcus Marritt | Share link:


I recently completed my second book cover project for author Karen Campbell, The Strange Adventures of Mavis Street. I highly recommend reading the work of Karen, it’s incredibly imaginative writing. This cover was completed while the book was still being finalised, which is pretty much the norm. Karen was great at giving me a synopsis to work from, including key insights and happenings in the adventures of Mavis – visual cues which have been included on the cover.

I have also included below the first cover I produced for Karen earlier this year, The Diary of a Broken Heart.

‘Marcus has been an absolute delight to work with. Nothing is ever too much bother and I have been blown away by how incredibly talented he is. Always takes the time to explain his reasoning for certain aspects of his design and has been very adaptable to a number of different briefs. He is our go to guy for all our design needs. Couldn’t recommend him highly enough.'
