In July 2015 Walker Books UK will publish a major re-issue programme of New York Times No.1 bestselling The Mortal Instruments Series by Cassandra Clare to attract a whole new audience as well as being a collectable for existing fans.
Each of the six titles in the series features gorgeous cover illustrations by Mila Furstova, the artist who created the album artwork for Coldplay’s Ghost Stories. The first book in the Mortal Instruments series, City of Bones, was a major movie release in 2013.
Lots of people asked about the new designs for the covers of TMI in the UK/Australia/NZ/Ireland. Now, these covers aren’t going to replace the existing covers. The existing covers will still be sold. These will be sold also, either in the teen or adult section. They simply give an alternate look.
These are some of my favorite covers I’ve ever had. These are etchings done by artist Mila Fürstová. Within each shape, you can see careful details: Clary and Jace separated on City of Bones, together in City of Heavenly Fire, Alicante in the rose on City of Glass.
