Below is a link to a website/blog I came across, whilst looking into the necessity of the cover of a book, I wanted to understand it more, and from the audiences point of view. Why do they buy the book?
This blog was perfect, it consists of lots of nice books that this illustrator and pattern designer has notices and collected over the years.
A large portion of the books featured on the blog were sent to her for free from publishers, authors and artists.
What more, I've been looking at pattern and it turns our she is a pattern designer as well as an illustrator! This could be me in a few years?! haha
Here's a link to his own website:
