Book: Strange Tales of Secret Lives by Jeff VanderMeer (2007)

Here's a rough comp of the cover of a new Jeff VanderMeer book to be published by Prime. Jeff asked me to design the cover and interior layout. I suggested that we see if Heiko Mueller would be interested in letting us use his "Swallow" illustration for the cover. Heiko agreed, and I just added some typographical fluff around his stellar illo. Notice the reuse of the typographic ornament from the rejected Privilege of the Sword cover design. More to come.
