Book Cover: The Devil Gets His Due by Leslie Fiedler (2007)

I just finished this cover design for The Devil Gets His Due by Leslie Fiedler. It comes out on Counterpoint Press at some point in 2008.

I've been noticing lately that, whereas in the past I would naturally design as if I were designing for screen printing, regardless of whether it would be screen printed, now I seem to be breaking out of that a little bit and getting very inspired by texture and transparency. I guess it's still "screen print think", since you can achieve colors shifts with overlapping, but instead of having everything be completely opaque, I'm liking this new subtlety of overlapping semi-transparent objects.

In any case, I'm pretty happy with this design.
