Illustration and book cover design for The Silver Empress by Ed McWatt, an author of historical fiction for young adults.
Spending months writing a historical novel left me with a clear sense of its tone and atmosphere, but little clue how to communicate this at a glance - the real challenge of any book cover. Through her use of colour and combination of imagery, Ruth has managed to convey the menace and looming disaster that took me more than 60,000 words to capture in text in 'The Silver Empress'. It's the perfect cover for the book.
