Penguin Deluxe Edition of "The Death of King Arthur"

Penguin Deluxe Edition of "The Death of King Arthur"

I was commissioned by Penguin Books US to design the new deluxe edition cover of Malory's "The Death of King Arthur" as retold by Peter Ackroyd. I went completely overboard with the jacket; being really self-indulgent, illustrating some of my favourite scenes in a style reminiscent of illuminated medieval manuscripts and romantic Iconostases.
