Australis Imaginarium revealed!

July 11th, 2010 at 5:59 am (Australis Imaginarium)

The very awesome Amanda Rainey has worked her magic once again, this time with artwork by illustrious Shaun Tan, creating the cover for Australis Imaginarium. It is beautiful and I love it.

Australis Imaginarium will go to print tomorrow, and, interestingly, because we’re using a different printer this time, will probably arrive the same week as Worlds Next Door! Will post a preorder special real soon!
