My Nebula and Locus award-finalist novel Finch is finally out in the UK, in hardcover this month, from Atlantic/Corvus—and it looks amazing. I’m squeeing all over the place.
To be honest, after awhile it’s easy to get jaded about receiving the actual book, but I’m going to say this new arrival made me act like I’d never been here before.
I’m not sure that any photos can do justice to the way this cover pops, but I’m gonna try…
First of all, the tendrils on the front are slightly raised and glossy, compared to the rest of the cover, which has a more matte feel to it. Yes, that’s right, the tendrils and their little pods at the ends are raised. SQUEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!
….And the same on the back cover.
The detective also forming an “I” is also slick and thus raised a bit, as is the title. SQUEEEEE!!!
Thanks to Nicolas Cheetham, my editor at Corvus, and all the good people at Atlantic, including Rina Gill, head of PR.
