Cover Art

I THIRST

Ray McBride is the talented photographer who took the pictures that grace the cover of I Thirst.  More of his work may be found at www.raymcbridephotography.com.

The front cover is of Perch Rock Lighthouse, located in New Brighton, England.  The view on the back is taken at the same location.

As the photographs were adapted for the cover, we thought that fans would enjoy viewing the original photos here.
                                           





ADAPTED FOR FRONT COVER




                                                                                                                                 ADAPTED FOR BACK COVER




THE ROSE AND THE SWORD

The beautiful front cover art for The Rose and the Sword was created by Crossvalley Smith, Kreuztal/Germany (1953-2015). It is a photograph with special effects. While the rose was from a winter wonderland in his local forest, the background was his special kind of image design. The artist was known for his use of various motifs, which he altered so that they corresponded to his idea.



The mysterious winter forest photography on the back cover, in conjunction with the sword art, were made possible by Anja Osenberg (Aachen, Germany) and pixabay.com/en/users/209144-209144, respectively.  The combination added a lovely dynamic that complemented the front.
