City of the Saints (2018)

City of the Saints is the first Mormon steampunk novel, an action-packed story with clockwork mechanisms, steam-coaches, and a futuristic vision of the 1859 west. Gears, pipes, and moving parts combine to share a glimpse into the story’s inner workings.

I am intrigued that the formation of such a work is not executed by the book artist, alone, but by the combination of writer, artist, and reader. The writer forms a story and the artist forms a design, but the book is not complete until the reader forms a vision as they react to the design and read the story.
