I just shot the third and final cover in “The Chemical Garden” trilogy this past monday. I won’t be able to show it for a few months, but the first two covers (below) have been a smash hit with readers and critics, winning many “best covers of the year” awards on literary blogs. These covers have been incredibly fun to shoot! Each one has been a true collaboration with Simon and Schuster art director (and resident genius) Lizzy Bromley! From sketching to brainstorming to prop shopping to dress shopping to building elaborate sets on the day of the shoot, every step has been pure joy! I’m sad to see the series come to an end. But Lauren DeStefano is a hugely talented writer, so hopefully we’ll get to help bring her next series to life as well.
