The Ape’s Wife

April 10, 2013

the apes wife

Here’s my wraparound cover design for Caitlin R. Kiernan’s forthcoming collection from Subterranean Press, The Ape’s Wife and Other Stories.  The book isn’t going to be published till November but to whet your appetite, you can read one of the stories from the collection, One Tree Hill, over at the book’s product page.

Caitlin came up with the concept for the image.  Originally, it was going to be a collection of objects representing various stories from the book, but later she proposed the idea of taking all the imagery from the lead story, The Ape’s Wife, instead, and suggested a list of objects for the image that I could use.  She also wanted the type design to be an integral part of the image so I had the idea to make it look as though it was part of the map in the background.
