Clarion Books Cover Redux

Publishing is like jazz: there are lots of moving parts that more or less move in sync towards a glorious finished product that occasionally bears no resemblance at all to how it started.

Thus it has been with the US cover of Impossible Music, which originally looked like this (this remains the artwork for the Australian cover), then become something very different, and has now settled on the image below. I love the new concept, and the green, and the fact that the words within remain the same.

“Out of silence … a song”: very zen.
