Full Moon Cover Creation
Mar 09, 2020
Today I wanted to share the story behind the creation of the cover, and also formally introduced you to the look of the book.
I've been working with a designer to create the cover and interior layout for my new book: Analogies, Energies & Celestial Bodies which is releasing on the Equinox (March 20th). The process was all new to me but Visual Laura (@visualaura) is grounded, approachable and fun to work with; which made all the difference for me.
We had an initial meeting where I talked about the ideas I had and the direction I wanted to take it. Then after a week or two we chatted again. At this point I had felt like I wanted to take the cover in a new direction, but I wasn't sure how much Laura had worked towards the "old" direction. Funny enough when we connected a second time Laura shared with me that she wasn't as far along as she had wanted to be and was feeling as if there was something needed to add depth to the design.
It was too perfect.
From there I had the idea to incorporate the Earth into the cover. Because yes, this book is about the Cosmos, but it is mainly about bringing that galactic energy down-to-Earth. We were both on the same wave length and at the end of the session Laura shared that she was planning to dedicate the coming weekend to creating the design.
Which was again just too perfect because that coming weekend it was going to be a Full Moon in the constellation of Leo. This is an uber creative energy and I loved the idea of my book cover being born under the light of a Full Moon. Then I also realized Laura's personal Moon sign is Leo and it all felt right on time.
When Laura touched based with me she confirmed what we had expected, that the cover had taken on a life of it's own. It was not what I had imagined, it was infinitely better. When I saw the designs it felt as though it all clicked into place.
Plus total coincidence that as I was writing this I found out it is Laura's bday today!
