Light for the Lost Boy: the Cover


I just got word that we’re allowed to show you the cover for the new record. When the folks at the label told me they wanted Katie Moore to do the cover I headed straight to her website. I was pleasantly surprised that I was already familiar with her work (with the Civil Wars, Leagues, Ingrid Michaelson and Trent Dabbs, to name a few) and even owned several of the albums. We met and I blathered for about an hour about the songs on Light for the Lost Boy. At one point I told her that I kept picturing a boy in the woods with a lantern. I said it bashfully because I doubted it would make a good cover. Well, a few weeks later she sent several ideas and everyone who saw this knew right away that it was the one. Thank you Katie, and thank you Centricity Music for signing her up to work on it.

Just for laughs, I’m including a link so you can download a screensaver, and you can also click the image below for a high resolution version of the cover. Can’t wait for you guys to hear the record in August.

    Love I also love how we’re getting little drips and drops of this record. It’s like the world’s best jigsaw puzzle, but we’re only getting one piece at a time. I can’t wait for the whole picture.

    This is an amazing cover. We can’t wait for the new CD….wow you sure know how to dangle that carrott…only appropriate I guess…”Rabbit Room”..

    I am very intrigued! Hope this leads to getting closer to a Wingfeather soundtrack.

    John Barber – I feel the same as you do. Not to be ironic or anything,but, wouldn’t this picture be an awesome 1000 peice puzzle as well?

  4. Paula Shaw

    Andrew, this is brilliant. On several levels. It brings back memories of my childhood, while at the same time quickens in me the present truth about the Light. I’m so excited to get the album. I so wish we didn’t have to wait until August. πŸ™‚

    …You can’t wait for us to hear it?!? I think our (or at least my) anticipation is likely higher, brother. πŸ™‚ This picture reminds me of a great movie trailer… whets the appetite just enough to leaving wanting more.

    Hats off to Katie for an awesome pic!

    Blessings to you and all you put your hands to.

    I teared up as well. Absolutely beautiful and it makes me want to enter the picture.

  7. Lydia

    LOVE IT!!! I can not wait until this August!!! (I had a feeling of what it would look like cuz of ur newest twitter pic hehe I cheat!) The picture makes me think of The Wingfeather Saga book #1 where they are walking down the road back home after getting out of jail!!

  8. Lydia

    I about cried when I downloaded it and on the pic it says August 28, 2012 πŸ™ tis too long!!!

  9. Jen

    Beautiful! I love Katie’s work, and this is stunning.

    And what the what? VINYL??? I have been wishing for some of your music (and a few other Rabbit Roomers) to get a vinyl release! Yay!

  10. Lindsey

    I love this. Your song about staying on the ancient paths – from Jeremiah (I was at the Birmingham concert) was breathtaking. This cover is simply perfect!

  11. Loren

    Perfect. Almost wishing I had a turn-table! I guess I’ll just have to have it blown up on my computer screen πŸ™‚ .

  12. Heather Cox

    There is something about this illustration that makes me want to follow him. They word is a lamp to my feet….

  13. Jaclyn

    AP — This cover is gorgeous. I promptly applied it as wallpaper on my double computer screens at work. Thank you so much for sharing.

    @JR — =)

  14. Peter B

    Sweet! I have a new desktop background.

    Very cool artist with some great name-dropping (Trent played at our wedding and we have the original Kelly Wingate albums). Can’t wait for the ‘moot….

  15. Cynthia Guy

    when will the VINYL be released? Same time? I’d love to get both the CD & the Vinyl.
    And the art work is amazing! πŸ™‚

    It was great to meet you after your show on Saturday night. I love an acoustic concert ! Thanks for introducing us to Nathan Tasker! I youtubed him to hear more songs! πŸ™‚ My husband treated me for my birthday to see you & SCC back in October and then for our 10th anniversary he treated me again to see you! πŸ™‚

    And I’m sorry if I totally weirded you out on the way out to your car from the building. My husband had just completed the sentence “Andrew Peterson will walk out that door as we walk by.” and then you opened it right as he finished that sentence! He likes to tease me a lot when I’m in a giddy mood over a concert. Concerts are just that way for me. So when he said that and then you walked out, I just had to laugh! πŸ™‚
