“Chris Taylor’s cover for my first book of poems, Across My Silence was stunningly apropos, setting the perfect tone for the work inside. I was so intrigued with his richly layered image that I asked the publisher to break precedence and include his name and description of the composition on the copyright page for all to see. Starting with its subtle backdrop of shadowy leaves and water, offset by a dramatic jewel of a monarch butterfly, and finishing on the back with a simple rendering of a gentle sea turtle, the cover art reflected themes and specific elements actually in the poems. I would go as far as to say Taylor’s artwork was a visual poem that gave extension and lustre to my own metaphors and ideas. Because of his creative efforts, I implore potential readers to judge my book by its cover!” Jack Cooper: Author, Across My Silence

Chris is a great illustrator who is very easy to work with and gives you a nice variety of his styles to choose from.
