My Favourite Book Covers

My next selection for 'My Favourite Book Covers', is a book which was created by a blogger/writer/ illustrator friend of mine Ann Sharples.

This is the first in a trilogy of 'Violet Jelly' books, aimed at children between the ages of 8 to 10 and also adults who are young at heart.

The book cover is fun, quirky and eye catching and what I particularly like about this book cover and the illustrations within, is the way in which Ann combines traditional illustration techniques i.e pencils and paint, with a more contemporary method of photo manipulation, in order to create them. In fact it amazes me how Ann can make the most extraordinary illustrations, from the most ordinary of objects.

If you would like to find out more about Ann or order a copy of her novel 'Violet Jelly' (available in paper or e-book form), go to her website at:
