When Lea at the Coastal View News asked me to participate in the Friends of the Library Centennial Fundraiser I had to say yes, after all I did work in a library for about 7 years. They're asking artists to choose a book and create a cover for it. Book illustration is not really my forte, but I considered Wuthering Heights and thought I could make something work. I still have to add the book title and author.
Back and front covers
The part I'm most proud of is the way I attached the sheet of canvas to the outside of the book....using all the tricks I learned back in the bindery. It's totally durable and even has the appropriate creases :)
The books will be auctioned off on November 6th at the Carpinteria Women's Club.
