Pictures! Pictures! Pictures!

It's a great day for the visually-oriented. The extremely fine Charles Vess sent in his sketch for the frontispiece of Hope-in-the-Mist and it is nothing like anything I'd visualized and yet, once seen, inevitable. Which is to say, it is an independent work of art. Everybody involved is very happy with it indeed.

I can't share it with you because I haven't permission. But I can let you see what the front and back covers of the book will look like.

An image of it can be found here:

and in much larger size here:

The color of the title on the front cover will be tweaked before the book goes to press, so it will stand out.

Doesn't that look like a nifty little book, though? I'm extremely happy for me.
