Word Forge Books is an independent publisher of quality books of fiction and non-fiction for adults and young readers.
Hattie Farwell Series The series of Hattie Farwell Mysteries by Betty Kerr Orlemann, required a look that could be extended across the book series. Word Forge Books tasked Pritchard Design with establishing a recognizable cover design hinting at the darks and lights that every mystery builds on. Each cover has a different color scheme to differentiate it and still create a presence on bookstore shelves.
Mission: Murder’s cover incorporates elements from this particular novel that blur to create an ominous feel. For the cover of The Corpse in the Quarry, Pritchard Design pulled together a mystifying montage that is consistent with the series’ graphic identity. Under the midnight blue title banner, the cover montage’s eerie, ghostly images hint at the book’s content.
