Framed Cover Art



I got some new cover art framed. Eventually these will hang in my hallway, but for now they have pride of place on top of a bookshelf in my living room. The paper lying flat in front of them is a sketch of several John Wayne studies, a gift from a friend at church. :)

Do you frame your cover art? Do you plan to frame some?

  2. Love it! They're beautiful! Have you always loved all of your cover art? Would you still frame it if you didn't? :) (Just wondering...)

  3. I don't think I would've thought of framing it but now that you've put the thought in my head, yes, if I love it, I'll do it. :-)

  5. I love that you frame your covers. They are so beautiful! And, yes, if I ever get a book published I will frame the it whether I like the cover or not! :-)

    Btw, do you actually have to take the cover off of one of your books or does your publisher give you a print of your cover?

  6. I don't have them framed, but a friend of mine has a copy that I signed and he framed and hung in his basement. He's got a TGI Friday's/Applebees vibe with all kinds of stuff on the walls! But someday i hope to have my on the walls too!

  7. Hi, Jessica R. and a happy Wednesday to you too! :) Still squeeing about you signing with an agent!

    Lacie, I have always loved my cover art. Only once have I asked for a tweak to a cover, and the publisher gave it right away. :) I'd probably still frame the cover art, even if it wasn't my favorite.

  8. Hi, Jessica, it's such a cool feeling to see it up there on the wall. I hope you fall in love with your book cover, and that you run to Michaels to get a frame right away. :)

    Wendy, I hope you run out of wall-space framing all your awesome book covers!

  9. Hi, Mary, the publisher sends a stack of cover flats (the book cover with no book in it and all laid out flat) and I trim the front of the cover flat to fit the mat. This last time was a bit tricky, since there were 9 authors in the Log Cabin Christmas collection and the printer only sent 15 cover flats. We had to parcel them out, but it was very civilized. :D We mostly each asked for one, so there were some to spare.

  10. Katie, I can't wait to see your book cover!

    Stephanie, that's cool about the friend framing your cover art. I love all the TGIF/Applebee's stuff on the walls. I'm always craning my neck to see something in one of those restaurants. :)
