Logo for spine and back cover are attached.
We are thinking that we want the focus to be the world that the book is about.
Focus should be the hieroglyphics and the woman.
Important visual elements:
-Half-seen woman in the dark
-Natural scene near the river in the woods
-Incomprehensible book of nature drawings and figures
-Symbols and runes
-Think mythical scenes
A silhouette of Lily, possibly reversed, revealing a river running through a wooded scene... in her hands she holds an open book, its pages filled with ancient runes and occult symbols.
I would be happiest if the female form on the cover doesn't come across as too cheesy...
I imagined something more realistic.
Text treatment is not too gimmicky, like with bleeding fonts or or glowing words, that kind of thing.
The JPGs attached include visual reference for Lily (especially when she is transformed in the middle of the night), the symbols in her books, and some of the natural surroundings.
Here are a couple of short bits of text where Lily first reveals her book to Guy, and then when Lily is transformed in the night, and her skin is covered with patterns.
Also, her eyes are shadows as if smudged with coal, as in one of the attached images.
