If any Seattle-folk went to see Rachel Bukey read from her new novel Leap of Faith at the Elliott Bay Book Company last week, and if you happen to be huge fans of the blog, and also I suppose just ridiculously eagle-eyed, you might have noticed a certain similarity of the cover (shown here):
And some of the pictures that I took of the George Washington Memorial Bridge (aka the Aurora bridge, aka the Suicide Bridge) here. Well, as you might have guessed, that’s no coincidence. The graphic artist who did the cover work reached out to me to ask my permission to adapt one of my shots for the cover here. As I say, I’m happy to oblige and love working out little deals like this. Happy to see a Seattle author work with a Seattle graphic artist to use the work of a Seattle photographer to make something new.
Is the book any good? My copy is in the mail. I’ll tell you later.
