Our lovely Penguin Group (Australia) contact, Sharlene, recently emailed me with an update email which included a number of exciting things.
First, briefly, The Stone Key
's 'A-format edition' will be released in January 2009.
(I'm guessing this means in it's second edition? Smaller size etc?)
Secondly, and this is the BIG news - Penguin's Fantasy
section of their site has a very exciting Evolution of the Obernewtyn Chronicles Covers
.pdf (6-7MB .pdf file), which includes a history of Obernewtyn Chronicles covers and detailed descriptions of how the artists arrived at the final covers we see published today, using stock photos, commissioned paintings, Photoshop and Illustrator! A must for anyone interested in the history of the Obernewtyn Chronicles and particularly, anyone interested in the novel cover design process!
Many, many thanks to Sharlene and Penguin for their updates.
The evolution of the covers is a MUST SEE for any Obernewtyn Chronicles fan!
