    The Full Dark, No Stars Covers That Might Have Been

    Did you know this could have been the cover design for our special edition of Full Dark, No Stars by Stephen King?
    That was just one of the dozens of options we considered. A lot of collectors never get to see "behind the scenes" of the creation of a Limited Edition book, so Cemetery Dance Managing Editor Brian James Freeman thought it would be fun to discuss how the cover artwork and design for our most recent Stephen King book came to be.

    Right now you can view EIGHT different drafts of the cover artwork by Tomislav Tikulin, along with the dozens of cover design options we considered, and also read some details about how the process worked in Brian's new post on our website: The Full Dark, No Stars Covers That Might Have Been.

    Completely agree that this behind the scenes stuff is fascinating. It is great to see the samples and get a peak into the process.

    This was one of the tougher covers to design for some reason, even though we LOVED the artwork. There are some great designs in there we didn't go with, but I'm really pleased with the final choices we made. Of course, I am biased...
