Iain has a new book out today – Every Word You Cannot Say*, and it has his drawings.
He has been doing them for people on Twitter… obviously i had to get in on that action! Love the fact that i’ve got my face stuck in a book.
Also, despite expectations, red is a good colour for me.
Look what turned up in the post this week, right after me posting about it a few days ago.
Tangentially related to the previous post…
That’s Iain’s latest book (or maybe it isn’t – a few months have passed…) The cover is a crop of the following photograph of mine, taken with the previously maligned Natura Black 1.9:
Not sure it’s the crop that i’d have made, but i’m notoriously bad at cropping my shots.
It strikes me as somewhat unusual to have covers that are “full bleed” photographs at the moment. Maybe it was never a thing… but certainly the current trend is to more designed and graphical covers. The IWTFY books have eschewed that direction and, to my eye, look all the more distinctive for it.
Both IWTFY covers have also been fairly abstract portraits of M., taken in the bath with a digital P&S… that is a trend which seems difficult to continue.
