Not specifically, I have sent the Harry Potter ones to Scholastic, but that is it... Not entirely sure what I would say.

They are beyond beautiful. I would love to own this set (and the HP as well).

Someone linked holly black on her liverjournal, the first response to this post: http://blackholly.livejournal.com/119863.html?nc=4

If you wanted confirmation that it (most likely) is her XD

Those (and your HP, lemony snickett, etc ones) are definitely gorgeous and SO much better than those "realistic" covers they do nowadays with a completely wrong version of the character. I hate having a human figure on the cover, your imagination and the author's words should be the only thing shaping what they look like.... anyway. xD

Tony really loved the covers too. We were just talking about how awesome they are. Hope you don't mind me posting them on my blog.

M. S. Corley said...

Holly, I'm honored.
Glad that you and Tony like them. It so odd having you see them, it's wonderful.

Uglies please! (For I am so very jealous.)

More seriously, these produce such a great dose of nostalgia. I assume you've seen the new Popular Penguin releases in Australia, in classic orange and white livery?

These are cool! I love the old vintage Penguin covers. I did one for their new Puffin relaunch which hearkened back to this style...

M. S. Corley said...

Wow Cool Tony.
What book did you do for Puffin?

I did a forward for "Peter Pan" and did the cover for "Dracula" which Hol did the forward to.

Here's me yammering on about it:

Goals provide the energy source that powers our lives. One of the best ways we can get the most from the energy we have is to focus it. That is what goals can do for us; concentrate our energy.
