of Artistic Licence Is Needed”

I don’t often see authors giving widespread kudos to the folks who design their book covers, but J. Sydney Jones--who I interviewed for Kirkus Reviews last year--has devoted a generous amount of real estate in his blog to Jem Butcher, a freelancer who created the front for Jones’ new historical mystery, A Matter of Breeding (Severn House), as well as its two predecessors. You’ll find their conversation about creating top-quality and relevant book fronts here.
