Elizabeth Camden’s The Lady of Bolton Hill
Here, I am posting another “alternate cover art” post. I’ve done two prior to this one and it has been fun. Today, I am featuring Christian author Elizabeth Camden’s debut novel. There were a handful of working concepts for this novel before the final design was sent to press. Published by Bethany House and designed by Jennifer Parker, here were three differing versions of the early working designs:
…and below, here is the final cover art from back to front:
Overall, I definitely prefer the final design. It is pretty and compliments the story well (which is a charming story fashioned after North & South). Of the prior designs, the middle cover is my favorite and the other two are just… “okay.” Jennifer Parker is a well-known graphic designer whose work is often found on the the books published by Bethany House – including authors such as Cathy Marie Hake and Janette Oke.
What are your thoughts about these designs?
