Classic Books

This month's artistic prompt from the Artful and Enterprising Order of the Agile Eye is "classic fiction".

Once again I left this pretty much completely until the last minute. I guess I did a couple of layout sketches last week but in the end the whole thing came together on Christmas and Boxing days.

The basic concept is of a Lonely Planet style revamp of the Guide. I sketched out a Megadodo Publications logo and an icon for "Don't Panic" featuring the sub-ether thumb thingy. At the last minute I added in the page curl because I didn't think there was quite enough parody in place so I wanted some more travel book bumpf.
