Up until now, my most exciting ever present was a pair of kittens (to clarify, they didn’t come in a box; I got a card saying We Owe You One Cat from my parents. I bargained them up to two). Now, no disrespect to said kittens, but I think they might have a challenger.
I’ve just been sent the cover for The Untied Kingdom. Behold!
It’s absolutely perfect, from the tattered flag to the bleak landscape. I love the light and dark, and the detailing around the title. And I really love that the couple are shown in silhouette, so you’re not coloured by anyone else’s vision of how they look before you read the book.
And because it’s Christmas, I’ll share a picture of my other best ever present (I didn’t mean it, cats, I love you just as much as the new book cover!).
What’s the best present you’ve ever received?
