Anderson, Matthew1930

This book cover links together the 1830s and 1930s by combining old illustration styles with new typefaces. A Regency print of George Stephenson’s Rocket has been coloured to reflect the colours used on the modern text of the cover. This mixture of old and new creates visual historical links for the viewer.
