Two Serious Ladies

Last year I worked on the cover illustration & lettering for the reissue of Jane Bowles' 1943 novel, Two Serious Ladies. Jane Bowles was a New York City writer, and this is her only novel. I liked reading John Waters' take on this book here, and I feel lucky to be a part of something that was important to other New Yorkers decades before I was born and arrived in this city.

Many many thanks to AD Allison Saltzman at HarperCollins Ecco :D

  2. Wow. I love our your book cover. I can't wait to read the story since I didn't read it back in 1943 but can read it now in 2014.
