Bedding Book - Finished Cover



My new book, The Design Directory of Bedding, is due to hit stores on October 5 and I just received the finished image of the cover! I've written in the past about the process of designing the cover and how many versions are produced before you find one that everyone can agree on.



Here are just a few of the covers that didn't make it!

Very pretty! That touch of red on the pillow and throw really makes the cover sing! Love the blue damask,too.

I like the picture in the big one you picked the best with the bed facing towards the right. They are all very very pretty but this one feels most comfortable on my eyes, more relaxing to look at... I look forward to seeing more! This is definitely a book I will want to see!

Love the book cover! It must be a HUGE amount of work to get a book to that point. Best of luck once it hits the shop shelves.

Hi Jackie
Well if these are the covers that didn't make it, I am anxious to see the beauty that did. I see your 1st book everywhere and even saw it in Italy. Keep up the fantastic work. Your books will be reference books for eternity!!

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
