The Titan Christmas Calendar continues! Today, we got the staff at Titan Towers to pick out their favourite covers from our books. From birds to pulp to Jack Nicholson, there's been some stunning designs over the years — so give your eyes a festive feast!
Chris Young, Online Publicist
Sure, the Xenomorph might be the star — but for me this one's all about Jonesy. Just look at him! Big fan of the slogan too...
Hannah Dennis, Senior marketing Executive
THE AYLESFORD SKULL: A TALE OF LANGDON ST IVES
This is my favourite, it's intriguing and slightly spooky, but with a contemporary modern feel that sets the artwork apart from traditional Steampunk fiction.
Andy Jones, Editor (illustrated non-fiction)
I think it's because I'm a huge fan of the game and the cover's really simple and subtle – but the image is instantly recognisable to any fan of the series. I love the finish on this cover too.
Jo Boylett, editor (illustrated and non-fiction)
The design is beautiful and striking, as well as evoking perfectly the feel of the show and the era it's set in.
A striking design which uses a little-seen alternative version of the famous ET poster art for the main eye-catching image, with other instantly recognisable images inset.
Miranda Jewess, Production Editor (fiction)
It's got a wonderful classic comic book + steampunk feel, while still looking fresh.
Chris McLane, Marketing Manager
SILHOUETTES FROM POPULAR CULTURE
A departure for Titan, but plays beautifully and elegantly into both the ethos of Victorian design and the modern phenomenon of fan art, which gives voice to so many talented creators outside the film industry who adore and celebrate movie and TV culture without cynicism or irony.
Lydia Gittins, Press Officer
Sleek and beautifully stylised, this is a cover that wouldn’t look out of place in a V&A exhibition and hints perfectly at the story contained within.
An amazing whirlwind of birds tearing across the cover; I love the way they fit in and over the bold text. For me this one always pops out when I look across the press shelves.
Bridie Roman, Editorial Assistant
THE ELDER SCROLLS V: SKYRIM - THE SKYRIM LIBRARY, VOL. I: THE HISTORIES
A simple but striking design that suits the Elder Scrolls universe and looks great on any shelf.
Philippa Ward, Publicity Assistant
CRIMSON PEAK: THE ART OF DARKNESS
It's a beautiful, gothic cover that perfects sums up del Toro's art style.
Cath Trechman, Senior Editor (fiction)
Perfectly evokes the brilliant novel inside - and every time I look at it, I want to pick up the book and start reading it all over again.
Steve Saffel, Editor
I love the illustration, the clean, crisp design, and the artist it represents.
Natalie Laverick, Editor (fiction)
Beautiful, gothic and romantic, just like the book.
Nicola Edwards, Project Editor
