I designed this book cover for the book called “The Crystal Ball Chronicles”. This is a novel based on a true crime that occurred in the 1920s in Palm Beach County, Florida.
“Ambitious young reporter Kate Brennan thought she had found a tranquil paradise. Instead, a fateful meeting with Lena Clarke, the spinster postmistress of West Palm Beach, Florida, entangles Kate in Lena’s mysterious and delusional life. Clarke’s obsession with snakes, foreign spies, and the supernatural led to one of 1921’s most bizarre crime sprees.”
Designing this book cover was a fun experience. The theme encompassed elements of murder, insanity, guns, and tarot cards. In Photoshop, I delved into the challenge of crafting a cracked glass effect on the mirror, symbolizing the protagonist’s descent into madness. The final result seamlessly weaved all these elements together. For further insights into the book and to grab your own copy, you can explore it on Amazon.
