My high school painting students are enthusiastically painting an illustration for the cover of a new book. Each student selected one of the following titles (some real, some based on other titles, some invented):
Dark Shadows Falling, Dangerous Beauty, The City of Lost Children, Mindgames, Singing in the Come Back Choir, The Ice Storm, Lives of the Monster Dogs, The Light of Falling Stars, The Man with the Golden Arm , Ultimate, I Heard the Owl Call My Name, The Wheel of Time, 3001, The Book of Lost Tales, Illegal Alien, The Enchanted Forest Chronicles, The Star King, Chasing the Dragon, The Last Barbarians, The River at the Center of the Earth, Into Thin Air
No one claimed to have ever heard of any of these titles. I tried to limit the titles to images that would be (or could be) appropriate for school.
Use them however you would like. If you have any others I could add to the list for next year, I'd like to hear them.
