I just recently received the cover art for my forthcoming book, Griffintown: Identity & Memory in an Irish Diaspora Neighbourhood. It will be published in May 2017 by the University of British Columbia Press. To say I’m stoked is a minor understatement. The art work is by my good friend and co-conspirator on many things Griff, G. Scott MacLeod.
Often the artwork is forgotten, when selling a book. I’m not sure if you had anything to do with the artwork for your book, but someone deserves kudos. It’s one of the better ones I’ve seen in a long time. Completely ties i to your work
Thanks. I did have input, in that I suggested Scott’s images for the cover, and I specified no green on the cover. The hyphen was also a negotiation, it was originally blue, I didn’t like it, I think it’s superfluous, but they at least changed the colour.
