Here is the first of the art reveals for the upcoming Manual of Aeronautics, the all-color, large-format technical drawings and deck plans for the Leviathan series.
As you voted for, it’s a top-down image of the Leviathan‘s bridge, showing the controls, the aviary, the coding table, and the message lizard tubes. I was also surprised when I got this from Keith the first time, and saw that amazing pattern on the bridge floor. Very Edwardian, like something you’d see on the Titanic.
Click here to see it bigger, and of course it will be EVEN BIGGER in the Manual of Aeronautics!
You can pre-order it (the Manual, not an actual bridge) now from the usual online joints: Powell’s, Barnes & Noble, Amazon, or IndieBound. And it will be at your local bricks-and-mortar store on August 21.
Also, thanks to everyone who came to my and Justine‘s Sydney Writers’ Festival event. You were an incredibly attentive standing-room-only crowd, and we had a great time. Thanks to SWF for having us, and for treating us so well.
Ciao till later this week, when there will be more Russian covers! (And Fan Art Friday, naturally.)
