Cover Reveal: Caledonia Dreamin’

Posted: October 6, 2013 by eibonvale in Caledonia Dreamin', New Titles

Our next book to be released is Caledonia Dreamin’, an anthology based on the glorious and unique words of the Scottish.  Glaikit, mockit, droukit, drouthy, couthy, scunner, thrawn – the Scots language is rich with words too gallus not to glory in, dialect terms that deserve better than to be boxed away as precious oddities. Here we’ve collected some of the strangest writers of Scottish descent to bring these terms to life – that’s Scottish by heritage or residence, adoption or initiation…

And here is the cover!  – hopefully finished aside from any 11th hour polishing and tweaks that arise (they usually do the moment I publish the damn thing!). This is one of Eibonvale’s odder attempts I think – with a full dictionary on the jacket and more text than art. Bit of a mind-fuck really if anyone starts to seriously try and elucidate the illustrations!  Or so i hope!   Anyway, here it is. November 1st is the official release date and I am really hoping to have some copies for WorldCon 2013!
