alternative book cover

     Here is my alternative cover for Raymond Chandler's crime fiction The Big Sleep :



       Exploring Chinese/ Japanese paper-cut art, it was a mental job to get all the details right: 



       Nonetheless, I have discovered these fascinating oriental, textual decorations that will be helpful for myself later on, hopefully soon I'll produce mixed media illustrations that combine drawing and this marvellous paper cutting.
