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. 


  1. Congratulations, Chau! Your book cover has a strong power to attract attention, I think if I go in front of the window of a bookstore, my eyes will see only that book!!!!! :)

    1. thank you, your words are so kind:) x
