Here it is - the book cover

I have some exciting news and a photo to share with you today. I have wanted to show you this for the longest time and I finally have the go-ahead from my publisher, Penguin. My book will be published on 22 February 2012, it's a hard cover and will cost $39.95. Here is the beautiful cover. It was designed by Allison Colpoys, Greg Elms took the photographs. The page design is by Nicki Townsend but I can't show you her work yet. I love it so much, even now, after first seeing the cover so many months ago and having my own copy of the book here. Every time I see it, I smile.


See what I mean! It just suits our topic so well. 


The first photo is the high resolution shot sent from Penguin. The second two are photos I took of the book I have here. The photo quality isn't as good but I wanted to show you the spine and back cover as well. They help tell the story of the book at a glance. I love the buttons sewn on the spine, the wooden spoon and scissors blend so well with the peg, string and egg on the front cover. I think it's beautiful, but then I'm biased.


I remember the day my editor, Jo Rosenberg, sent me my advance copy. I froze when I saw the parcel, unsure about whether I would like the look of the finished book. I'm not good with saying I'm happy with something when I'm not. What if I had to promote a book I didn't like the look of? Well, I shouldn't have worried, I opened that packet and fell in love with it. I love the feel of it - it feels like a linen cover. I love look of it, not only the words I've written but every single atom of it - cover to cover. I am so proud to call it 'my book'.  

What do you think?

ADDED LATER: I'm not sure about overseas sales. I will sell some from my blog and Hanno and I are happy to post world-wide if we are asked to. As soon as I know more, I'll let you know.

  1. I think that is so fitting and beautiful, Rhonda. I especially like the buttons on the spine and I can imagine how lovely this will look sitting on my bookshelf...

    Congratulations. You deserve this moment! :o)

  2. Elegant AND simple - fantastic cover Rhonda! I will look out for your book in NZ.

  3. It is simply beautiful Rhonda. I have always preferred simple, uncluttered designs and I think it perfectly encompasses everything you write about, right down to the 'hand-stitched' edging. Can't wait to see it in the bookstores and I usually place a cookbook on my wrought iron book stand but that will look beautiful out on display in my kitchen! Definitely on my wish list!

  8. It's beautiful. The 27th February 2012 will be my 47th birthday. I now know just what I would like to receive as a present. Will it be available worldwide at that time? I'm in England.

  9. The cover looks stunning, Rhonda. I am so very happy that you have been given a wonderful opportunity to share knowledge to all of us, even this 53 yr old.
    Thank you for sharing.
    I am hoping that I can purchase it in the US through Amazon.
    Have a great week.

  18. It looks irresistible! Congratulations :)

    I understand completely about the importance of feeling good about the "package" as well as the content. One of my design jobs included a book jacket that I still feel well pleased with, 12 years later. When it's right, it's right!

    ReplyDelete
  19. It looks lovely! It's clean, simple, and homey, which is totally fitting.

    Will it be available in the UK and the USA? Or only Australia?

  22. Rhonda,

    If you are biased then I think we will all be biased. The cover to your book is awesome. I have followed you from the days of Aussies Living Simply and have waited that long for your book.

    I can't wait to get a copy. My daughter lives not a million miles from you in Caboolture and I hope she might indulge me with an early birthday present as soon as it is published. You deserve all the kudos that this book may bring.

    Regards

Congratulations Rhonda and Hanno! Regards, Ruth xx

    ReplyDelete
  35. I like it, Rhonda :-) I had a different picture of it in my mind for some reason, - maybe because your blog is so colourful and full of photos and images, but the simplicity and lack of 'busyness' of the book cover is really apt and fitting. I hope it'll be available in the uk soon.

It is a dream of mine to publish a novel in my lifetime and your success shows me that anyone can do it as long as they have a passion and put their mind to it. Congratulations!! I look forward to purchasing it.

    Hello Rhonda

    Thank you for sharing the book cover. It is absolutely stunning in its simplicity of design and links beautifully with the content. I know it will look as good in reality and that the content will exceed expectation.

    I have a very select collection on the my bookshelf but this is one that will definitely make the cut.

    Congratulations and best wishes for a very successful launch.

    Most importantly the service you are providing by sharing your knowledge is inestimable. I suspect it will prove to be essential reading in the not too distant future as it becomes a necessity rather than a choice to live simply.

  146. I haven't been spending much time in the blogging world so although I knew you were writing this book, I missed that it was not only finished, but published. Congratulations. It looks gorgeous. I'll be visiting my sister in Oz at the end of the year but will put a reminder into my diary to hit the bookshops while I'm there and get a copy.
