It’s raining and cold in New York so...a quiet blue post.

Type and copy may tweak a bit but this is basically the cover for the sequel to Jay Lake’s Mainspring.

Art by Stephan Martiniere.

[Lots of kudos for Stephan on Jay's LJ.]

I loved Main Spring, both the book and the cover. This is great news. When's it out ? - Jeff the enthused.

Irene Gallo said...

Hi Jeff,

I'm sorry to say it wont be out until next summer. I sometimes debate whether it makes sense to post these covers so early but, well, it is the art department and we tend to be working on covers about a year before pub date. By the time I see books published they almost feel like ancient history to me.

Wow, that is beautiful. I am totally in love.

My only comment (based on my experiences with the Mainspring cover) is that I wish it had some bright element somewhere in the picture to catch the eye from a bit of a distance. The covers are absolutely stunning in the hand, but from tabletop display or bookshelf, the eye isn't drawn so much.

Venusian said...

I don't mind the wait - I know it's going to be great.

I don't know Jay - it sure drew me in. It was lovely, not gaudy...

David Apatoff said...

Very nice, Irene. Is this a digital piece?

Irene Gallo said...

It is digital, David. I’ve often thought that Stephan is one of the most exciting digital artists out there – using the medium for what it’s best at and not trying to mimic oil paints with it.

Once again, more great work by Martiniere

Awesome! I need to get to reading my copy of Mindspring soon! I've been looking at getting some Martinierre prints for my office. With my love of dirigibles, I think the two Lake covers would look great side by side!

Do you like playing the game where you need to use wow gold, when you do not have World of Warcraft Gold, you must borrow warcraft gold from friends, or you buy wow gold. If you get cheap wow gold, you can continue this game.
