Another terrific book design by those clever artists at Blacksheep has only gone and helped GEMINI FORCE ONE: BLACK HORIZON win the Book Cover Wars over at Mr Ripley’s Enchanted Books!
Thanks are due to Vincent Ripley for such enthusiastic organisation of the voting across four heats, to James Macey, the designer at Blacksheep, and most of all to the brilliant fans who racked up almost 42% of the total 918 votes for this, Gerry Anderson’s final project.
If you voted for BLACK HORIZON then THANK YOU from all at Team Gemini Force (MG Harris, Jamie Anderson and Orion Children’s Books).
I thought it would be interesting to see a some of James’s progress artwork. So here as a special treat, some of the early concepts that our designer worked on before the final version.
Fascinating to see the evolution, eh? That’s one of the great things about books – great book design becomes an instrinsic and memorable part of the story.
