The Big Sleep - Raymond Chandler

This is a book I keep coming back to over the years. I own quite a few iterations of it for the fabulous covers too! Looking forward to capturing the cool noir feel in my drop cap. :)


Update 1:

I've left my sketchbook at home today, so will update my brainstorming later. But here are the early stages of my first idea - a cross-hair target. A gun is central to the plot in 'The Big Sleep', so it seems a fitting idea.

Very first sketch of the idea (thinking about the concept)

Second sketch (thinking more about the style of the letter itself and how it will interact with the concept)

Refining (still much more work to do yet!)
