Cover illustration for Cold Harbour

Cold Harbour, a supernatural thriller by Francis Brett Young, was published in September 2007 by Ash-Tree Press. Generally, dustjackets for this fine publisher are printed with two Pantone ink colors. This constraint tends to enhance line-artwork--usually achieved with pen-and ink/rapidograph. Details of line, cross-hatch and stipple remain as articulated and sharply defined as the original artwork. The right kind of line-artwork tends to be more dynamic than images that require a halftone.
