So here we are, the first of one hundred covers for the Bowie Book Club. I have no idea where this project is going to take me or what I'm going to learn on the way … so perhaps Dante's Inferno is as apt a starting point as any. 

Most of this idea was rescued from a rejected design I worked on earlier this year – one of those simple concepts that has hung around on my desktop, looking for a home. Also at the back of my mind was a magazine article I wrote recently, looking at thematic links between Inferno, Frozen and The Thing. For some reason, there's a lot of Dante in my work at the moment.

Probably best not to ponder that one too much.
