A Bargain in Silver – book cover
Posted 5 years ago and submitted by Martin Beckett | Share link: http://illo.cc/69594

I was recently approached by author Josie Jaffrey to redesign her book covers for a series called ‘Solis Invicti’.
The stories are set in a post-apocalyptic London, in a world in which the human population has been decimated by a blood-born virus. In the wake of the zombie apocalypse that follows, a vampiric race called the Silver seizes control. Without the protection of the Silver, humanity will soon cease to exist, and without uninfected human blood, the Silver will perish. A necessary symbiosis is the result, but the power of the two races could not be more unevenly balanced.
If the price of safety is slavery, would you bargain our life?
This first book ‘A Bargain in Silver’ and is available now.
This was a great series to work on and I had the pleasure of not only doing the illustrations but also designing the ‘Silver’ font and laying the covers out.

“Martin designed, illustrated and formatted five books covers for me (front and full covers). He also completed a logo redesign. His ideas were imaginative and practical, resulting in a cohesive set of covers that I couldn’t have envisaged myself. Throughout the process, he was extremely responsive and helpful, and always willing to make tweaks to the designs as requested. I’ll definitely be using Martin’s services again in the future."
