It seems fitting that my first post as the bowerbird girl is with this image of Darren Booth’s book cover “An object of beauty”, done for Steve Martin’s book. Darren is a new find (via Jessica Hische’s dailydropcap.com) and I’m wondering where he’s been all my life. Just my type of gig, with his beautiful typography and colour and texture and ^#$afxhs … oops, sorry the keyboard got suddenly slippery, must learn to control my drooling.
To see more gems from this very clever man, have a stickybeak at his site http://www.darrenbooth.com
Or, if you are as smitten with the cover as I was, go straight to his blog and read about the process behind it http://www.tamberhouse.com/914768/Process-An-Object-of-Beauty
