Book Cover Design

I've been having a bit of fun getting a look right for the Daughters of Leda project I'm working on. It will be published in honour of my sister Anne-Marie who turned fifty this year - so it will be self published, using Lulu. In another life I'm a photographer and have done some bits and bobs of design work (see the Unwinding Slowly and Imogen's Wardrobe blogs). This is exactly the kind of project I enjoy. The base image is the inside of one of the tholos tombs at Mycenae, which I had the good fortune to visit on a study trip many moons ago. The most impressive of these are known as the Treasury of Atreus and the Tomb of Clytemnestra - so very apt for this WIP.

Ooooh, this is wonderful! I love the silhouette, too, and the photo's location - very apt for the book.

Thanks Lena! Now I just need to write the book to go inside the cover, LOL.
