As I move closer to publishing my first book, I’ve been paying close attention to covers. There are some truly remarkable covers out there (as well as some crap ones, of course), and several that I’ve loved have been done by one artist, John Mattos.
It turns out I have great taste. His work has already appeared as a postage stamp for the 2006 Winter Olympics, and everything he touches is gorgeous. I love the Art Deco style, and he’s a great example of a modern artist using that to create his own work.
Have a look at his site for more!
