How did you make this work:
In ‘Jabberwocky’, Carroll conjures up a world of endless mystery and bizarre twists on the familiar; populating the land with the strangest plants and creatures, filling the air with pure wonder. And yet, it is also underpinned by a recognisable ballad form, following a brave hero on his quest to slay a monster. I wanted to capture both sides of the story in this cover image.
