“Sitting in Powell’s Watching Burnside Dissolve in Rain”
Because we love what we do, and the walls of our world are graced with many of these custom creations, we thought our fellow lovers of “book cover art” might enjoy this fine art print as well. Whether displayed in a hallway, the kitchen, or your office, it is a visceral reminder of life’s possibilities when storytelling and visual art merge.
The cover illustration for Sitting in Powell’s Watching Burnside Dissolve in Rain (by Doug Stone) was inspired by Doug’s poetry and his love for Nighthawks by artist Edward Hopper. Robert worked with Doug to illustrate this uniquely Portland scene—a lone reader sitting inside Powell’s Books on another rainy night downtown, where the streetlight illuminates the puddles and raindrops spark the imagination of a writer.
