Book Cover with Rebecca Lysen
I am very excited! Why you ask? Well as most of you know I am doing a Book Trailer for Tobias McGriff’s new book “Savannah Shadows.” Well Tobias is pulling out all the stops for this book & that includes having an amazing publicist & a famous graphic designer for the book cover. Her name is Rebecca Lysen. If you haven’t not heard of Rebecca by name you most certainly have seen her work. She is the one who did the cover design for the book “Wicked”, has designed a TON of book covers for Barnes & Noble, & is currently redesigning the label for Jameson Irish Whisky, just to name a few. So needless to say I knew the cover for Savannah Shadows would be nothing short of incredible. Tobias asked me if I would be up for photographing the cover, so of course I jumped at the opportunity. There was an extremely short window to get the photograph in the hands of Rebecca, so we produced them an image in less than 24 hours. I also found out that I got the honor to be the first photographer Rebecca has collaborated with for a cover design, as she normally deigns it from the ground up. I just received the final book cover design where the front & back cover are my photographs taken specifically for this project. It doesn’t stop there, Rebecca is also designing the interior layout of the book, and yours truly is having around 15-20 full page photographs throughout. So yeah, thats why I’m excited!
