A young-adult, historical-fantasy set in XIV century Scandinavia by Swedish author Johan Theorin. Part 1 of the series Krönika om Jarmaland (“The Jarmaland Chronicles”).
I provided illustrations for the cover, map, and chapter headings (the latter remain unused).

About the Project
When the publisher commissioned the artwork for the project, we discussed the visual style of the interior illustrations and opted for a vintage feeling, vaguely inspired by XV-XVI century European woodcut art and cartography, especially the famous Carta marina by Olaus Magnus.
The chapter headers, unfortunately, didn’t make it to the printed book.
