5/23/10 - The Raven

This is an illustration for the poem "The Raven" by Edgar Allen Poe.  I thought about maybe illustrating the entire poem, and if I ever do, I'm going to use this as the cover.  I'd probably silkscreen it on some gravel text from Paper Source.

The first image is how it the front of the book would look, and the image below is the book laid open. I personally think that the cover is effective enough so that you don't even need the title on the front, but that is, of course depending on how well versed you are with Poe, I guess.
