Cover Artist

Postby An Absent Humphrey » Thu Sep 10, 2015 9:26 am

I'm such an arse.
Does anyone have to hand a copy of the American (I think the UK cover was different) edition of 'Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell'?
I want to know the artist and name of the picture on the cover. This one:

I meant to make a note of it before I left this morning and I forgot. So I'm hoping someone here will be able to help. I tried Googling it but to no avail.
Cheers.

There are several different covers - the one I have is plain red with white lettering (same font) and raven

Also failed with google. Sorry.

Nah, she did the internal illustrations (and the raven thingy, I think).

The painting that's on the cover of the edition above is an actual known artist (sometime in the 19th century, I recall) and that picture exists outside of that book - it wasn't commissioned for the book.
I just can't remember the name for the life of me, but I'll recognise it when I see it.
Never mind. I'll check when I get home and I'll write it down this time.
