This is a book cover for "The Sight" by David Clement Davies. The book is about a wolf pack... I'm not so clear on the plot. There is a baby and another wolf pack and some of them have powers. Anyway, this was done with screen print, the shiny symbols on top were screen printed with varnish, then I put thermal embossing powder on top of the varnish and used a heat gun to melt it to get this glossy effect.
Of course I also forgot to put a spine on the book but the deadline is monday and I still have 2 book covers to go so let's not get picky.
The effect is much more subtle, unfortunately when I took the photograph it came out more shiny then in real life because of the overhead lights.
