Alejandro Colucci: Nathan Hawke's Gallow Cover Illustrations
Alejandro Colucci’s powerful illustrations take centre stage on the covers of Nathan Hawke’s Gallow series. Gollancz have made the bold move to publish these covers without a title or the author’s name, concentrating on the hero of the story, in action.
I bumped into Nathan Hawke at the World Fantasy Convention in Brighton recently and he was wearing a t-shirt with the image of Gallow, charging at us, axe in hand – so I presume that he’s a big fan of Alejandro’s interpretation of his fantasy hero. The Crimson Shield is Nathan’s debut book and the first of three fast-paced historical fantasies.
