I’ve recently become involved with a project to republish the classic Sir Arthur Conan Doyle novels. This is the first cover I’ve designed for ‘A Study in Scarlet’ the début novel to feature Sherlock Holmes, written in 1887.
‘A Study in Scarlet’ begins with the reminisces of Dr. John Watson M.D. veteran of the war in Afghanistan on how he met his long-time colleague and friend Sherlock Holmes, a rather strange, eccentric and brilliant whose true profession remains a mystery to those around him.
Originally published in 1887 ‘A Study in Scarlet’ is the first novel featuring Sherlock Holmes written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
Includes article on the history of the novel, the writer and the inspirations for the character.
