I found this exercise great fun. We are asked to create an illustration of book cover from a still life with a juxtaposition. Although not strictly a book and more of a play or movie, I chose dial M for Murder.
I used some of the lighting techniques from the previous chapter using a snoot to focus in on an old telephone, off the hook, with a blooded knife, using these two objects in a juxtaposition illustrating the title. I added the text and extended the dark background with photoshop to finalise the book cover.
