We’re now a mere two weeks away from publication day for Jim Henson, so I thought I’d give you a peek at these, which arrived on my doorstep a few days ago:
That’s the front cover on the right, and on the left, the back cover in its entirety: a full cover shot of Jim amid a sea of Muppets. The photo on the back wraps onto the spine, in fact, so that when you set a few books on end . . . well, here you go:
For some reason, I’m particularly delighted that there’s an alarmed T.R. Rooster staring straight out at you.
Finally, to the right, here’s a peek inside at the top of the same chapter I showed you back here. See? I told you there’d be a photo there. In fact, in addition to the chapter headers, there are two photo inserts in here, and they look great. I’m really pleased with the way everything turned out.
Oh, and as a nice little bonus and clever tip of the hat: if you take the dust jacket off, the book is bound in a nearly perfect Kermit green.
Meanwhile, kind words and encouraging reviews continue to trickle in. I’ll send a few of them your way tomorrow. Until then, thank you, everyone, for your enthusiasm. Your wait is nearly over. It’ll be worth it. I promise.
