Nights at the Circus

Fevvers, an Etching

Anyone who has read Angela Carter's novel "Nights at the Circus" will know that it is a veritable treasure chest of vividly evocative images, rich in texture and detail and just ripe for depicting, any illustrators dream.

This image of Fevvers, the story's feisty protagonist, is an etching. I used this design for the front cover (adding the title and authors name later by hand).
