Walking on Gold

Walking on Gold by Janine Amos
Book Cover by Maria Forrester
A few weeks back I completed a lovely commission for a book cover aimed at young readers.

To read an extract from the book and for more information about Janine's work and other books, you can visit her new website The book is due to be published in Spring 2014 and sounds really exciting. I'm sure it is going to be a great success and I'm looking forward to reading the whole book.

This book cover was created using various media. Watercolour and cling film was used for the background. Rubbings of fossils, drawings of coins and grasses (and making them look like rubbings), acrylic paint, hand rendered text and even my rough seagull drawings were used to create this colourful cover. This was a commission for the full front and back cover, but also for publication on ebooks.
