Working with Labelschmiede was amazing. They are very creative, have a great eye and ideas for detail and are incredibly nice! Communication and response time was excellent. And tolerance for yet another client-request™ ("can we pls change the texture of the second molecule from the right to something that resembles more the Queen of England and a typewriter? Also, can I have the final file as a greyscale .pms format please?") was admirable and much, much appreciated. It was such a pleasure to collaborate with Labelschmiede! I now have a great book cover that's a work of art by itself, and am very happy.
The creative design was great. She will only improve as she gets more experience.

How JournalStone started their book cover journey
Orphans of Wonderland
Greg F. Gifune
Twenty years ago, journalist Joel Walker wrote a book about a ritual killing. It exploded into a bestseller and became part of the mass Satanic hysteria of the 1980s. However, his story and the evil he investigated were real and left him the victim of a nervous breakdown. For the last two decades, his has been a quiet existence far from his former home in Massachusetts. But when one of his childhood friends is brutally murdered and rumored to have been involved in bizarre medical experiments, Joel is lured back to find out what really happened. Joel must delve deep into the darkness once more, investigating all the way back to his own childhood, and the secrets he and his old friends buried there years ago. But where do paranoia and madness end and real evil begin? With the Orphans of Wonderland.

What colors do you want to see in your design?
We'd like to keep with the "Satanic Panic" theme, so use of a pentagram would be preferred, though we're open to any concept you feel works under that umbrella.
I've also attached the previous cover of this book, as our publishing house will be re-releasing it. We're not looking to duplicate it, it's there for inspiration.
