Top of the bananas of covers.Makes it look like the film's already out and been a hit.

Alis said...

That's honestly the best cover I've seen in a long while. Fantastic!

Frances Garrood said...

It's wonderful, Doug. As Alis said, one of the best.

This cover hits it out of the ballpark. I love this, and I'm with Alis. It's the best one I've seen in ages. It's also refreshing to have faces on the cover.

Sweet, amigo!

Let's hope that the US chains pick it up!

It looks brilliant, love the custom type - very sophisticated smoke.

Great cover for a great book. Good luck with the pb release, Doug.

Great cover, Doug.  Now just imagine a stack of these on the table in a Waterstones or Barnes and Noble, their pristine shiny covers gleaming back at you!  If this happens at our Waterstones in Sheffield I’ll post a photo!

Thanks, all, for your comments and encouragement. June seems like a long way off, but this cover helps get a buzz goin'.

I love seeing humans on a book cover that are not donning Amish bonnets or Regency gowns. Seriously.
Compelling cover with the boys on it, and I'm so glad the font is the same as the HB. Just gorgeous. June with be here in a flash. Wishing you much success.
