Phosphor Art's Bill Sanderson recently worked on a lovely book cover for Picador/Pan Macmillan. Skybound by Rebecca Loncraine focusing on subjects of gliders and learning to fly, but is also about a woman trying to reacquaint herself with her body and the world after the terrible trauma of breast cancer treatment. It's a deeply personal narrative that follows Rebecca as her new passion for gliding takes her from her home in Wales all the way to New Zealand and the Nepalese Himalayas. Sadly in 2015, as she was finishing the book, Rebecca became ill again and died at home in Wales in September 2016.
