While we are probably all, at this point, somewhat used to the beauteousness that the art department at Feiwel & Friends turns out on a regular basis, this one is something special.
PREDICTION: This book cover is so very gorgeous that it will tempt so very many readers currently unaware of Ellen Potter's fantabulous storytelling, characters and general writing skillz (Yep, I am so jazzed that I resorted to pluralizing the work 'skill' with a 'z' and I kind of want to punch myself in the face for doing it but I am too happy and excited to go back and re-word...) that, with this new book, she will become the NYT Bestselling Author with Legions Upon Legions of Fans that she SHOULD be (because I have complete faith that the inside of the book will be even better -- which in this case, is saying something -- than the outside):
(I'm a little bit scared of the girl -- she looks like she could dole out Serious Death Glare.)
As many of us are extremely interested in How Cover Art Comes To Be, Ellen Potter's post about her experience with the process is worth a read. And, of course, the artist should get a standing ovation.
