Lord Woolamaloo, aka Joe Gordon, has his own rather wonderful blog - the Woolamaloo Gazette - and also blogs for Forbidden Planet International. That's where he wrote this:
"I know very little about Ravi Thornton and Andy Hixon‘s upcoming The Tale of Brin and Bent and Minno Marylebone which Cape are publishing this summer, other than what the description says. But look at that cover. Yes, I know, we shouldn’t judge a book by its cover and all that, except I can tell you that not only do many readers pay great import to how a cover looks and how it makes them feel, so do we booksellers. And this one stopped me dead, I just loved the look of it and the sensation it gave me, a style somewhere between a wonderfully odd animation by the Brothers Quay and the art of Dave McKean. And over the years I’ve learned to listen to that little intuition that sometimes just tells me that a book is going to be one I want to read, even before I know much about it. And I think this is going to be one of those books. Straight onto my Must Read list…"
You can see Joe's actual post here.
I'd like to meet Joe someday, so I'm going to get in touch with him and see if I can make that happen. I'll let you know what he says.
