Book Cover: The Count of Monte Cristo

One of a series of book covers I'm preparing to send to art directors.

The Count of Monte Cristo is hands down one of my favorite books of all time. An immensely entertaining story with twists and turns and ultimate revenge. As I designed this cover, I wanted to portray the power and anonymity of the Count "cloaked" in mystery and disguise. The title being written in the stars signifies destiny. In my mind it also looks like how Dant├Ęs might have written on his prison walls. . .
