Brave New World Project

The following images which include one binding design and three book illustrations are created for the Folio Society Competition. The chosen book this year is Brave New World by Aldous Huxley.

The binding design-----"The optimum population...is modelled on the iceberg-eight-ninths below the water line,one-ninth above."

Illustration 1 for Chapter V :"He heard nothing, nobody was coming...when the others began to jig and stamp and shuffle, he also jigged and shuggled."

Illustration 2 for Chapter XI: "Looking down through the window...the savage could see Lenina's upturned face, pale in the bluish light ...the mouth was open.."

Illustration 3 for Chapter XVIII: "He had almost finished whittling the stave into shape, when he realized with a start that he was singing..."

After this project, I will move to my graduation project---creating a series of fantasy illustration of my own story. Need to work harder.
