Ill Fame cover design

One of my favorite blogs to check regularly is The Book Design Review. As someone who has loved books all her life and spent a lot of time looking at covers, I thoroughly enjoy reading a designer's reaction to covers he comes across.

Joseph and I emailed a little bit about Woman of Ill Fame, and he very generously posted the cover with a little bit of critique. You can read his post here. Like most people, he was struck by the photograph of the woman on the cover, just as I was when I first came across her. I feel so lucky that Heyday Books was willing to incorporate her image into the design.
