Sending Out an SOS

This has a publication date of Tuesday, Feb. 12th, but is in stock at booksellers already, Notes from a Bottle Found on the Beach at Carmel, by Evan S. Connell and published by Counterpoint Press.

The front and back covers are by yours truly and the original image can be found on my website, here. Cover design by Ann Weinstock of Weinstock Design in New York.

It’s very nice to have an image from my personal work selected for a book cover, to have it coupled with great design is all the better, and to hear how much Connell loved the image completes the circle.

Unfortunately, Connell passed away a month ago at the age of 88. He was a nominee for the Man Booker International Prize for lifetime achievement in 2009. He was also the author behind the novels Mrs. Bridge and Mr. Bridge which became the 1990 Merchant-Ivory film, Mr. and Mrs. Bridge, starring Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward.
