Chalkboard Bookselling

One of my favourite jobs while working at Page & Blackmore Booksellers was updating the chalkboard outside the shop. It's an interesting medium because it is so temporary. Of course this means it has its hazards. One day I went into work only to discover that one of my boards had been speedily re-chalked by a colleague because a child had come along and smeared their hands across the blackboard. After that I resolved to start recording what I created, which resulted in this mini portfolio.

Most are based on existing book covers, but the final two are my own original designs.

This final one is my favourite, mostly because I had more creative freedom, not having to work from an existing book cover.
