Digging for gold
Happy Monday! I’ve always had a problem with Mondays, or was that sleep deprivation? Either way, Monday morning saw me trawling for coffee and inspiration after spending my whole weekend computer bound working on the Miss Blimey novel.
This led me to the sumptuously good work of Sterling Clinton Hundley, illustrator and painter, and his wonderful Treasure Island illustrations and book cover design. Being a fan of just about anything to do with sea-faring scoundrels, I of course read Treasure Island as a kid, but I think I would have loved it just that little bit more if I had had these wonderful pictures to saturate my imagination. There is also nothing better than a hard bound book that comes in its own special box with silver foil printed goodness.
