Book page illustrations

My husband has created some really beautiful artwork this summer! These are a few of my recent favorites. All of these are originals drawn on actual book pages.


Sherlock Holmes, John Watson – on pages from The Return of Sherlock Holmes.


Detail of Hunter S. Thompson, drawn on a page from Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.


Hobbit couple, drawn on prologue page of The Hobbit.


The Knight from The Canterbury Tales.

Come visit us at the Dane County Farmers‘ market in Madison to see Chad’s literary inspired artwork along with our bookish jewelry and accessories! We’re located near the top of State Street in front on Teddywedgers, Saturdays through early November. If you’re not in Wisconsin, you can always check out what’s new online in our etsy shop!

We have lots of fall art shows in the works as well and will be posting soon to announce where you can find us through the rest of the year!
