The Night Train at Deoli and Other Stories, by Ruskin Bond

The Night Train at Deoli and Other Stories, by Ruskin Bond is a collection of short stories about the lives of people in a small hill station Shimla, in India. 

For the drop cap 'B' I took inspiration from a sentence from the book, which is, "From the window of my room I own the world".

These initial ideas and sketches after reading the book

I took the idea of bougainvillea stems coming inside the room through the window, the window from which the writer looks outside to the world.

Here is the final book mock-up

This was an awesome experience. Thank you Jessica Hische, love and respect from India.
