Penguin crime series book covers

C S Forester crime series for Penguin

About a month ago I got a call from Penguin books asking if I had time to do three cover illustrations for some previously unpublisher C S Forester crime novels. But they needed them quite quickly, they said. Like by Wednesday, preferably. This was on Monday! No problem, I said. I love a challenge.

So here they are, the fastest linocuts in all time. Designed, approved and printed in two days flat. And what’s more, they liked them! They are not quite finished as one of them needs a second character adding in the background but the other two have gone to proofing and I’m looking forward to seeing them in the flesh with the text added. I will post photos when I get them.
