Cover design with lettering and calligraphy

Cover design with handmade printing for Walden or, Life in the Woods by Henry David Thoreau. I designed the lettering and the cover. Later I transferred the design to a linoleum block and manually printed it on engraving paper using Charbonnel ink. I added the copperplate handwritten calligraphy with the subtitle and the name of the author. In the final image I used a Freepik mockup.
