In case you’re living under a rock and haven’t heard, vlogger/educator/professional brother Hank Green wrote a book! An Absolutely Remarkable Thing comes out this September.
Hank recently released a video to his personal channel discussing the process of designing the endpapers for the US hardcover edition:
Jason Markow, better known on the internet by his screen name TEKST, shared the other side of the process with his Medium article discussing the collaboration and his process of developing the (incredible) art.
I love behind-the-scenes looks at book development, especially when it comes to covers and other art. To develop book art, authors and their teams have to think carefully about the book’s themes and imagery and draw in a way no other process requires making those squishy ideas visible. I loved getting a peek behind the curtain of one of my most anticipated releases of the year.
