The entire final jacket of Luka and the Fire of Life
by Salman Rushdie. I was sent the JPEG version of it just a few days ago, so I thought I might post it too. Please forgive some slight pixellation which has occurred from my using an online image editor to resize the file (I am, alas, still entirely unacquainted with Photoshop). The jacket design is by Robbin Schiff and Anna Bauer of Random House U.S. My original ink and gouache illustration is here
And with this, in lieu of a seasonal image from me this year (which I utterly failed to produce), I wish everyone a very merry Christmas!
