  2. The Fever and Winterland are stunning

  3. Hi Robin. Thanks for your comment. I love those covers too. But I really like the cover for Watching the World Change as well. The image selection is great, typography is great, and the spacing is just beautiful… It’s a really balanced design that doesn’t overwhelm the subject… Henry’s does this kind of non-fiction so, so well. :-)

  4. Thank you for the post Dan.
    I’m so happy that you highlighted Keith Hayes and LeeAnn Falciani’s covers.
    Two of the most modest, humble and talented designers out there.

  5. Kick-ass work Henry!!

  6. Thanks Ingsu & Robin!
    Kicking Ass but respectfully not touching anyone’s ass. ;)
