Sneak peek at art from ‘The Shadowhunter’s Codex’ by Elisabeth Alba

Shadowhunters! We’re just about a month away from the release of The Shadowhunter’s Codex, which will be released on October 29, and to tide us over, artist Elisabeth Alba has shared some of her art featured in the Codex. Below are drawings of the Silent Brothers and an Iron Sister.



So here are some drawings to while away the time. Both are from the upcoming Shadowhunter’s Codex compiled by Cassandra Clare and Joshua Lewis, a companion book to Clare’s Mortal Instruments/Infernal Devices series which will be published by Simon & Schuster in late October. They are two of sixteen illustrations that I contributed. They were recently published in the gallery of her web site, thus my posting them here! Both are pencil on Denril vellum. (Denril has a wonderful surface, by the way. I highly recommend it!)

  9. It always breaks my heart a little when I think of Jem in the silent city for so many years. I recently re-read the City of Fallen Angels and when I read the line “Would that I had been here, he said, his voice unexpectedly gentle, when you were growing up. I would have seen the truth in your face, Jace Lightwood, and known who you were.” I burst into tears, and I am not a crying sort of person, how did I miss tat the first time around!
