Back when we (that’s RJ and I) originally published Free Gondola Ride, we were trying to come up with cover art. Happily, we were offered the use of Dino DeZorzi’s painting, which is what we went with. It’s the best cover, and I’m so happy with it (but still kicking myself that I didn’t buy the painting when I had the chance).
Here are some of the other covers we considered. RJ came up with them. The miniature gondolier is actually a pencil topper.
Now we need cover art for the new book on Casanova….. Any artists out there??
