The Wall Street Journal has an interesting article on the progression of the design for the cover of Steig Larsson's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I just thought it was an interesting look into the design process for a book cover.
Here is a direct link to a slideshow of some of the rejected cover designs.
April, 2020 - I think I'm going to shut From My Bookshelf down for a while; maybe for good. I've been putting this together for quite a few years now and it's starting to feel a bit more of a chore. I'll keep my Goodreads connected, but with the state of the world right now, I just want to read without worrying about making sure I post something about it. Who knows - when the world starts to make some semblance of sense again, I may start actively posting here again. Until then, as always, happy reading!
