Have a read of this blog post by the illustrator, describing the process behind the final, eye-catching cover for The Velocipede Races.
Learn why the cover is pink (some folks are addicted to pink; others love purple) and see what other colors were considered. Color can make a big difference in mood and perception. Which version was your favorite?
I was tickled to learn the name of an artistic style called “papercutting/scherenschnitte,” which is a style I love for book covers, but until now I’ve never had the right word for it.
I think my favorite aspect of the final cover is that the corset, while delicate, also appears to be partially made out of muscle.
