Jeff Cottenden (not a HF author)

Post by aessea1001 » Thu November 20th, 2008, 12:22 am

this is the guy (see above) who does a lot of HF book covers-they include:
some of Philippa Gregory's books (maybe all of hers?) such as...
"The Wise Woman" (not a photograph-a drawing, maybe? on the back of the book it's called a "cover image")
"The Other Queen" (photograph)
another title that's he's shot the cover for is Christie Dickason's "The Firemaster's Mistress" (also a photograph).
Note: the three that I am talking about are the American editions of the novels-I don't know if he's also done, say, the UK versions of the same/other books.
To mention and expand on another person's post (sorry, I can't remember which one of you guys it was! :) ) all of the one's that I have that he's done only a part of the women's faces are showing (such as from the side-as in "The Wise Woman", from behind- "The Other Queen", and the bottom half-The Firemaster's Mistress.) Here are links to view the covers for each of the three books:

The Wise Woman:

The Other Queen:

The Firemaster's Mistress:
http://www.amazon.com/Firemasters-Mistr ... 381&sr=1-1

I like the whole "partial view" concept with a lot of HF covers. Like someone said you can sort of use your imagination (to an extent, anyway).

I did a search for Jeff Cottenden and I came up with an article:

Does anyone know of any other book covers (HF or otherwise) that he has done? I'm wondering if he did "The Widow of the South"-sorry I can't remember the author right now, but I do know it was a guy, if that helps. :)
