unreleased City Within cover by gaborcsigas unreleased City Within cover by gaborcsigas
The City Within is a dark contemporary slipstream novel written by Csilla Kleinheincz, a friend and an ex-colleague of mine.

This piece here is just an exercise in book cover design by yours truly: the book hasn't yet been published in English (afaik), and the cover of the Hungarian edition is absolutely different. This cover in this specific form is, most probably, never going to get released, although the novel itself is rather likely to come out in English sooner or later. (Should you feel interested in it, click its title above to read an English excerpt.)

Credits:
• Design, photomanipulation and typography by yours truly.

• blurb copy by Csilla (afaik it's the official blurb)

• Font by Cape Arcona :thanks:

• Stock photography by =resurgere and *inkeyling :thanks:

Please note again that there will be no commercial release of this cover, so all stock resources are used legally.

Hope you like it! :nod:

Looks very good, the feather makes a gorgeous "spine" or "red line" for the cover and the all in all feeling of the cover is well balanced and delicious. I would read the book!

thank you! if the cover managed to raise your attention about the content of the book, then it does its job well -- and that's good news for a designer! :)

thank you, it's kind of you to think so. :nod:

my choice of stock is based on the initial idea for a project, not the other way round -- but who knows what might come some day, so thank you. :)
