MOTHER ISLAND - Bethan Roberts

How does it feel to come home from work one evening and find your two-year-old son gone?  How does it feel to steal another woman’s child?
This is the story of two women, joined by old family history and by love for the same little boy.

A tense, psychological drama about the fraught relationship of the two main characters requires a striking two-sided book jacket.

MR WESTON’S GOOD WINE - T.F. Powys
This post-WWII allegory of good and evil, has been beautifully re-imagined for Vintage Classics by illustrator Tom Duxbury. Tom was a perfect choice of artist for the cover image, but, would you choose Mr Weston’s light or dark wine?

COLD BLOOD - Richard Kerridge

'What might it be like to be cold blooded, to sleep through the winter, to shed your skin and taste wafting chemicals on your tongue?’

Part natural-history guide to these animals, part passionate nature writing, and part personal story, Cold Blood is an original and perceptive memoir about our relationship with nature.

For the cover we wanted to celebrate the beauty of nature and these fascinating creatures. We tried many different animals before deciding on our final newt, which was found amongst the Dorling Kindersley collection from Getty Images. The final photograph works its way across the cover and is spot varnished to help give the newt a more tactile feel.
