I sent in the final edits to my next book, Unbuilt Projects, today, and to celebrate, I was going to do what I'm not yet supposed to do, which was to give you a sneak peek of the cover. The image comes from a favorite childhood picture book of mine, but as soon as I uploaded the snapshot--I thought, no. One wants to honor our good publisher's wishes. Instead I'll pass along a different image from that picture book, one we almost went with. You might recognize the style from the previous design incarnation of this blog. Remember the thunderstorm, the running animals, the chickens looking out of their coop?
