Throaty Wipes

Susan Holbrook asked me for an image for her new book, Throaty Wipes published by Coach House Books. Susan asked me if I had any images that might work with her title. It was a bit of a stretch but I thought of some images I made the summer before of my sister-in-laws livestock in Rocky Mountain House Alberta. Specifically this image of Betty, one of Shelley’s hens. Susan liked it, Coach House Books agreed, and the art director Heidi did an amazing job working the image into the constraints of the cover.

Two of Susan’s other book covers with my photos are below, a black cat that hung out in our North Vancouver backyard, and Iggy, a friends dog photographed in Toronto.

This is how I originally processed the image.

  • How fun Graham that our critters make it as models for book cover photos. Be sure to visit again this summer and we’ll do our best to offer up some new and interesting subjects for your photographic talent. Cheers, Shelley
