I am delighted to reveal the cover design that I have just completed for Victoria’s Lost Children. This is a children’s book, written by Dr Stephen Curran. The book is a collection of seven short stories based on the lives of children in the Victorian era. I have completed illustrations for each of the 10,000-12,000 word stories that cover the plight of child sweepers, seamstresses, mill workers, river workers, coal miners, match girls, and those in domestic service.
The short stories include the following titles: The History of Johnny Sweep, Florence Bovington Goes East, The Farley Mill, The Pigs, King Coal, The Canaries and The Maidservant’s Secret.
