Gary Roberts over at Toolemera has reproduced this wonderful work from the mid nineteenth century. Having decided to redo some of his title covers, he asked me to do a drawing for the cover of this work.
The first drawing (above) was too busy [he said], so I did another drawing that wasn’t. I think this is my first book cover on a book I didn’t write. You can order the book here.
It is an interesting book, the conversation is in the vernacular and context of the period, so it makes for good reading. It also contains information that is useful for anyone doing finishing, gold leaf work and decorative painting. A great addition to the library. (He did misspell my last name in the credits).
