A Web of Air

Philip Reeve’s follow up to Fever Crumb.
Very tricky depth of field – juggling beak to houses to horizon and making
sure it worked with the outer jacket peep-hole. Difficult perspective issues
too, what with the crater conurbation and funicular villas.

Philip has an accompanying map on his weblog which will further set the
scene for the forthcoming book…

  1. Thanks Steve. I’ve no idea how the final cover will appear – it was originally designed in the same style as the Mortal Engines re-issues (with a double cover so initially you only see a bit of the main pic through a hole). Apparently some bookshops had issues with the slightly fragile nature of the design. The paperback is being released at the same time with a completely different look (which I did as well) but Philip and I consider this one to be superior…

  2. I do too, however I agree that the paperbacks were flimsy. I actually have a copy of Fever Crumb (hardback) without the hole in middle. Why can’t they just do that? Thanks for reply.
