Creating Book Covers

For the covers of my collections No Way Home and Dear Lucifer and Other Stories, I had the great fortune of working with someone who is not only a great friend but also a great designer, David Löwe, from Berlin, Germany.

To find out how David approaches design in general, and the covers for my books in particular, I caught up with him recently, asking him on how he comes up with his ideas, how he uses typography, the challenge of eBooks and the importance of animation in presenting book designs.

To read the interview, complete with illustrations, short movies and revealing insights into the creative process, go here.

You can see more of David’s work and some of what inspires him on Instagram.
