cover art mockup for In the Land of Pagodas

So our manuscript of our scholarly translation of Alfred Raquez’s first book, Au Pays des Pagodes, has been sent to NIAS Press and we’re moving into the later stages of production: copyediting, proofing, indexing, etc.

The cover is also coming together. Local comic book artist and our good friend Sheila designed two layouts for the cover image, and we are happy to announce that the Press has chosen the red image for the book cover!

Here is the alternate cover…

I like them both and I’m happy that I didn’t have to make the final decision (ignore the text, it’s placeholder for design).

I’m pleased that NIAS has agreed that we should also translate Raquez’s second travel book, Pages Laotiennes (Laotian Pages), and hopefully Shelia will also design the cover for that book as well. That translation is due out toward the end of 2017.

Stay tuned for more info as In the Land of Pagodas takes final shape…it should be available by December this year!
