Got ya covered, Sax.

Some months ago, I designed a dustcover for a new edition of Sax Rohmer stories. Although I haven’t received a printed copy yet, I hear that the book is off the press and I should see it soon.

During the layout phase, John Robert Colombo (author of the book’s introduction) shared the design with at least one other person whose opinion he values. I loved the response that came back:

“I think the cover design is most accomplished, nightclubby elegant and a bit sleazy, a difficult mix to have managed […] this is the best cover of all your books.”

High praise indeed, considering that JRC has over 200 books to his credit. In fact, I have designed a couple of other J.R. Colombo books and two for Ruth Colombo, too. Retired now, I get to work for “lunches and chocolate” on projects that appeal to me. I have to change that to “lunches and coffee”. The chocolate calories are too much.


Got your back, too, Sax.
