My final cover for The Tears of Boabdil is back from the designer. I love the directness and mystery of the eyes and the subtlety of the blue Islamic lettering against the black background.
My brief to the designer was that it had to say “police”, “deception” and “Muslim”.
This was my first mock-up and the designer’s execution.
I didn’t feel this fitted the brief, and combining two faces proved to be technically complex. So, we went through another round of design with a different concept to produce the final cover. You can see my thinking on the intermediate steps in this post.
