The Price of Silver
Posted 5 months ago and submitted by Martin Beckett | Share link: http://illo.cc/69955



In the straits of necessity, sometimes there isn’t room for freedom.
I recently completed the cover for ‘The Price of Silver’, the second book in the ‘Solis Invicti’ series by Josie Jaffrey.
The cover had to visually tie into the series’ look with a simple design and minimal shading on the main characters. The background imagery had to reflect the main setting of the story. There is also a hanging girl… this is a supernatural horror/romance after all.

Testimonial
“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."
