Today i am sharing a sketch of a cover idea for my next Social Age Guidebook, which is aimed at Community Builders. So far i have published ‘The Trust Guidebook’, and ‘The Social Learning Guidebook’, with ‘The Social Age Guidebook’ ready to go in May. These all follow a similar format: under 10,000 words, with a strong practical focus.
For this image though, i was reminded of an old lino print i did years ago, with a flattened perspective, of a fishing port down in Cornwall. Originally i had show the port, but for this illustration, i’ve sketched the skyline of the town. Perhaps it’s like Central Park, spread outwards. I’m not sure if this will remain as the final published version (it will be released in April), but choosing the imagery to accompany the work is a fun, final, step.
