Cover Design: Ring of Bright Water

Another thing I realised when coming back to this poor neglected website-o-mine is that in a wild fit of enthusiasm, I had designed quite a few extra book covers last year, which I never posted.

One of them is this one, for Ring of Bright Waterby Gavin Maxwell.Ring of bright water

Ring of Bright Water is a beautiful book written by a man who lived on a secluded island near Skye, with an otter for a companion.

I took this photo when I was on holiday in Skye a few years ago. I did actually see Gavin Maxwell’s island, but unfortunately they’ve build a big bridge from the mainland to Skye, which has a pillar right on his island, so it wouldn’t quite have captured the seclusion. The bottom is slightly blurred because I took it on a bus!
