Binding Design

AVE! Old knitter of black wool. MORITURI TE SALUTANT. Not many of
those she looked at ever saw her again—not half, by a long way.

I found nothing else to do but to offer him one of my good Swede’s ship’s biscuits I had in my pocket. (...)
He had tied a bit of white worsted round his neck— Why? Where did he get it?

(...) a head that seemed to sleep at the top of that pole, and, with the shrunken dry lips
showing a narrow white line of the teeth, was smiling, too, smiling continuously at some endless and jocose dream of that eternal slumber.

An entry for the Folio Society competition. I designed a binding and illustrated three scenes from Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad.
My design was selected as one of 6 short-listed finalists for this competition.
