Diseases Of Seamen

Latest project i have been working on is based around designing a book cover. We were given a list of books from The Invisible Library which we were then asked to illustrate. I choose the book 'Diseases Of Seamen'. Here is the outcome i have developed which shows the front and back cover as well as the spine of the book and the folded sleeves which go around the pyshical book. A nice little fact i learnt from this project is...

Book sleeves actual purpose was to keep the books from getting dusty or dirty. When people bought the books, they usually threw these away!
