Fabian Black: Cover Gallery


 Cover Art  Old and New

 I've had several covers for 'Moving On.' I designed my own to start with because I coudn't afford anything else. A book cover is vitally important and I soon realised that home made would not do. I began to trawl around lookingh for affordable artists. I contacted an artist who had just completed a design course and was looking to build up a portfolio and was prepared to offer cheap rates. She designed me a really beautiful, artistic cover for next to nothing. I loved it. However, I suddenly realised that , beautiful though it was, it didn't convey the right message about the book. It looked like a children's book and given my subject matter that wasn't really an ideal situation.
