Amazing Feats of Civil Engineering – Cover Reveal!

Coming September 1 from ABDO!

Coming September 1 from ABDO!

 

Isn’t it pretty? I love the details of the sketches on the background. Although I do admit to being slightly perplexed at the choice of cover image, because that’s not the bridge that’s actually in the book, this one is:

Confederation Bridge - 11km of concrete goodness linking New Brunswick and PEI

Confederation Bridge – 11km of concrete goodness linking New Brunswick and PEI

Although now that I see them together, the Golden Gate is a bit more photogenic… Either way, I am basking in that proud author feeling today, and can’t wait until actual 3D copies arrive at my door, one of which I’ll immediately pass on to my friend Tahrana, an accomplished climate engineer who helped me understand some of the more technical concepts I had to master to write this book. Smart friends are an author’s greatest asset.

What’s your favourite bridge, building, or other example of the civil engineer’s art?

    A not-so-well-kept secret: cover designers are not necessarily required to read the books. 🙂
