Michael Walters’ blog links to this fascinating analysis of book-jacket design, in this case for the U.S. edition of Walters’ own novel The Shadow Walker. The designer/illustrator/blogger in question, Richard Tuschman, walks the reader through jacket design in a way I suspect you will find most enlightening. Needless to say, his blog looks good, too.

In civilian life I'm a copy editor in Philadelphia. When not reading crime fiction, I like to read history. When doing neither, I like to travel. When doing none of the above, I like listening to music or playing it, the latter rarely and badly.
