Following a brief, and in discussion with the author, Mimi Khalvati, The Weather Wheel cover illustration was designed for poetry publisher Carcanet. It incorporated elements from the book’s subject matter, and explored themes set out in the poems; these included weather patterns and symbols, the lunar cycle and small animals.
I am thrilled with the cover of my book that Martin Parker has so beautifully designed. He has the uncanny ability to intuit exactly what one has in mind and to translate it into the perfect image. He also has a wonderful eye and the patience and perfectionism to get brilliant results every time. Mimi Khalvati
