I had a great surprise when I stumbled across this guest post over at IB Book Blogging, by HarperCollins designers about the process they went through to create the MADMAN'S DAUGHTER cover. They talk about their inspirations, brainstorming process, hiring a photographer (the great Lara Jade!), finding a model, the photo shoot (in the UK!) creating mood in the photo, and selecting fonts. It's a fascinating post, check it out here.
