A first (and second)
These two are my very first book covers -- designed for the MIRA imprint. They are redesigns of 2 of 3 books for Deanna Raybourn's "Silent in the Sanctuary" and "Silent in the Moor". All elements of her packaging were redesigned including her author type and title treatment, but most importantly to the success of this redesign: the inclusion of the heroine and the very tight crop of the beautiful Victorian gowns that are very much part of the editorial content for Lady Julia Grey.
They were shot in Toronto by Dermot Cleary at Knox College/U of T and at Grenadier Pond in High Park.
