So the cover,
which for any publication is very important, it's the first thing the public sees as they view the book shop shelf or view online.

for this project I drew 5 ideas in all ,
I usually draw four cover roughs and then send to the Editor to approve ,or for comments ,
Clive Bryant liked version 1 for the plain text cover a simple pose of Hamlet holding Yoricks skull with the Dutch castle in the background.

Clive liked cover number 2 as it showed all the main players in the play and also looked like a movie poster but wanted to see Hamlet's sword raised and the death skull replaced by Hamlet's Fathers ghostly head so i drew another version and this was decided as the cover for the original text and quick text covers , both chosen cover ideas work well and have been penciled by David Lorenzo Riveiro
