Gail Carriger today unveiled the preliminary artwork for her next novel, Etiquette & Espionage: The Finishing School Book the First. And I think it’s really nice:
I couldn’t find out who designed it, but I must say, this is quite striking. I think I may prefer these to the Parasol Protectorate covers, too. It’s only going to feature on the novel’s ARCs, however (boo!), but the final version will only be “slightly different” (hurray!). Etiquette & Espionage will also be Carriger’s first hardback release, which is great news for readers and author alike!
UPDATE: CORRECTION (19/03) – Etiquette & Espionage will actually be published by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers (LBYR).
