This cover was great fun to design, aided by frills such as gold foil and embossing. The dragon was drawn freehand, then coloured. Layered offsets were made of it in a couple of colours to give it a feel of old print. I also finally found the perfect use for a font I have long loved: Chinese Rocks.
A historical novel which begins at an archaeological dig in China where Zach’s mum has landed a job at a nearby museum. Zach joins her there most reluctantly for the holidays, but once he has found a mysterious carved jade dragon at the dig, life turns very strange indeed.
