Summer Night by Dan Simmons
Yet another French cover this week but by author Dan Simmons.
The actual cover itself is a composite image created by myself - in actual fact (yes yet again) the man IS me photographed in my Machester studio and later placed into the scene !!!
This image has actually been used before on another book cover which always suprises me.
I find it interesting how / why some images never sell and some sell multiple times within the same industry. Anyhow - the location of this image sadly is no more, which is a real shame as it was amazing. The location was actually an old asylum located in deepest darkest Wales in the UK - all the walls were intricately carved in Oak panelling but sadly the travelling community decided to strip it all bare (another piece of history gone forever).
