The Art of the Book Cover

Preparations are under way for my upcoming collection with the fabulous Doire press! (

I am so delighted the amazingly dynamic artist Curtis Bartone will allow us to use his beautiful painting “Untended Garden” for the book cover.

I met Curtis and his wife Pamela on the island of Sicily in 2018 on an Artist in Residency Programme at Officina Stamperia Del Notaio and feel blessed to have had this fantastic cross creative sharing born in Sicily!

Although, the old adage says “never judge a book by its cover”,  the book cover is surely an art within itself and I hope that the writing in this new book matches the beauty of the cover!
