Story behind the cover image

on April 15, 2018

Pasiley Shirt Image

The cover image for the collection Paisley Shirt was taken by Robert Sheie who allows images to be shared under creative commons licence.  Robert’s company is called Menswear Market which  is a personalised online consignment service with clients across the U.S. and customers around the world. He helps clients to sell their merchandise online by using websites such as eBay and Amazon.

To thank Robert for allowing me to use image, I sent him a copy of Paisley Shirt. I was delighted to receive an email from him giving a little more background information to the image. The paisley shirt I chose is a silk dress shirt from the House of Bijan in Beverly Hills (“the most expensive store in the world”), so I am pleased to have selected an exclusive product for the collection.

Note to self: remember to put a reply address on packages otherwise they may be regarded as unsafe. Thankfully, Robert took the risk in opening the envelope, so now I can share this information with you.

Paisley Shirt is available with free delivery from The Book Depository and is stocked in Gullivers in Wimborne, The Book Shop in Bridport, Serendip in Lyme Regis and The Swanage Bookshop.

    It’s a great cover shot and very memorable, which is the point, right? It sets the mood for the stories within.
