The Luscious Dark Cover Art of Patrick Knowles
Patrick Knowles is an artist of hand lettering and cover design, and I was delighted to have him create the cover for Nightwalker. I am fascinated by calligraphy and have an enduring desire to learn this ancient art of lettering. I even bought a small calligraphy set in Napoli, Italia, which contained a sturdy quill and two small shimmering bottles of ink in blood red and jet black. Plus a delicately lined notebook for practicing. I have not yet cracked the ink open, but I am gathering the courage and shall dive in someday soon, I hope. Until then, I will look longingly upon Patrick Knowles’ hand lettering. He even has done design for the Crown in England!
