Book Cover Illustration Idea


This would be a collection of essays based on the provocative lines in Shakespeare's "King Lear. Such as:

Have more that thou showest,
Speak less that thou knowest,
Lend less that thou owest.

KING LEAR 1.4. 230

Maybe it should be "Quotable Fools". Jesters have the best lines.

Great idea John... are you writing the book too?

Hey Yo

I don't propose to write these books at all. These are samples of what my artwork and sense of design looks like when applied to a book cover. Someone much more talented than I would have to do the writing.

Maybe I'll write the book. It's a good idea.

I've got one in the works right now, when I get it finished maybe we can collaborate on a cover? It'll be within the next 2 years.


john cox:


Indeed! I'm always available to colaborate on such projects.

Hang in there and good luck!
