Final Artwork for the Book Jacket

Another quick post. I just got the final artwork for the book jacket for Return to Exile, and I wanted to share. The jacket was designed by Laurent Linn at Simon & Schuster, who did a tremendous job. John Rocco did the cover art and over forty internal illustrations.

Jacket Design for Return to Exile
John Rocco is best know for doing the cover art for:
  • Percy Jackson and the Olympians
    • The Lightning Thief
    • The Sea of Monsters
    • The Titan's Curse
    • The Battle of the Labrynth
    • The Last Olympian
  • The Heroes of Olympus
    • The Lost Hero
    • The Son of Neptune
  • The Kane Chronicles
    • The Red Pyramid
    • The Throne of Fire
Pretty much, everything Rick Riordan has written except for 39 Clues. If you're interested, you can see these covers on Rick Riordan's site.

John has also written and done illustrations for:
  • Blackout
  • Moonpowder
  • Wolf! Wolf!
  • Fu Finds the Way
  • The Flint Heart (by Katherine Paterson and John Paterson)
You can see more of John's stuff on his blog or on his website.

Okay. This post wasn't as quick as I thought it would be. Back to writing...
