Here’s how the new cover is coming along


Illustrator Pete English has produced a fresh draft of artwork for the alternative front cover. Click and then zoom on the image above to get an even better view. I’ve asked for a few more details to be added. Once the final pencil drawings have been okayed Pete will add the colour.

Here’s an extract from one of Pete’s existing works. It gives you an idea of what the final version of the illustration will look like:


There will be two covers produced, one with the new artwork, and one with the existing 1897 illustration.

    I only recently discovered your blog/future book, so I missed the kickstarter campaign…
    I intend to buy your book when it arrives, maybe not the most expensive 😉 but I’ll definitely support your efforts.
    Thanks for investigating and writing about such a fascinating and increasingly important subject.
