Blood Meridian







These are two images I did inspired by Cormac McCarthy's incredible and insanely gruesome book, Blood Meridian. The first was my submission for Carla Poirier and Jacques Lane's amazing type show a little while back.
The second is my attempt at a jacket design for the book. A little violent, I know but part of me feels that readers should know what they're getting themselves into before starting this book...

If there were an edition of this book with that cover on it, I would buy it in a heartbeat.

I agree with Tom, if I saw a Cormac McCarthy book on the shelves looking like this Id definitely want to get my hands on it.
