Bookish Delight

I'll just say it: I love books! I have always been a book geek, since my earliest reading days. Even today, in the Kindle era, my home office/photo processing room is also a library, lined wall to wall with hundreds of books collected during my lifetime. Which is why it's an extra special delight to license an image to a book publisher for a book cover. Here are a couple of recent book covers featuring a Mojave Morning image:

 The British edition of  The Son  by Philipp Meyer. I took this picture in El Mirage, Mojave Desert. The novel is set in Texas. Close enough.

 I was just contacted by the publisher of the French edition for permission to use the image on the French version.  Avec plaisir!

 Kellerman's "Bad Love." I shot this at the Santa Monica pier. They added the scary dude.

I don't always track where images have gone, particularly the royalty free images (the above are rights managed, not royalty free), but when I find a book cover, I get an extra shot of glee.
