The Creation of a Scottish Book Cover

As an example of how thorough, and how professional, and how completely dedciated to the art of book-creation my publisher is, I would like to post these photographs, taken in order to prepare the cover of my 2014 release, Scotland or No.

In all I understand that my publisher photographed 19 closes in total, and nearly 100 photographs, which as I say  - -  shows great dedication!




The final result of these noble labours-without-end was the book cover as follows:
