Book Cover: A Feast of Ice & Fire

You know it is going to be a fun shoot when your preliminary notes say: “doves flying out of pie??”  I recently had the opportunity to work with Chelsea Monroe-Cassel and Sariann Lehrer, authors of Inn at the Crossroads, as well as prop stylist Beth Wickwire, to create this cover for A Feast of Ice & Fire, the official Game of Thrones cookbook.  Chelsea and Sariann created all sorts of delicacies from the books for our shoot: Rack of Lamb and Herbs, Beef and Bacon Pie, Baked Apples, Cream Swans, stews, tarts, and my favorite – the lemon cakes!  The cookbook can be pre-ordered now and is out on May 29.

The wraparound book jacket gave us the space we needed to create the feast; here’s a look at how it came together:

After a lot of rearranging and working around where text would be placed, we ended up with this final image for the cover:


Thanks so much to Chelsea, Sariann, Beth, Joe, and David from Random House – great day, great team!
