Animal Band arrives

shortly after i got home tonight the UPS truck pulled up and with a knock and a thump roared off.

"a box?"

there's no more story needed.

my first (and currently, only, copy) of Animal Band showed up

here's the cover, with the jacket on it. larger : click image

the jacket pulled back. the jacket is die-cut and glossy. the case (the physical outside of the book) is matte with UV on the title to make it shiny. this scene wraps around the back. larger : click image

here's an inside spread, the action of the book heating up. larger : click image

then there is Sterling Publishing's spring guide. they told me Animal Band was going to be featured prominently... this is kind of silly. (i'm not complaining.)

- the top image is Animal Band's spread in the catalogue.
- the bottom left image is the cover of the catalogue
- the bottom right shows one of the section pages. Animal Band images are the illustration for these spreads.

i am honored. there are some BEAUTIFUL books being released by Sterling in the spring. Animal Band's place in the catalogue is crazy and humbling.

again, the book won't be available until March, but you can pre-order it.

Animal Band is available for pre-order on Amazon.

...and Barnes and Noble.
