the ghost of malabar

Book Design & Illustrations  |  HarperCollins India

A spooky tale of a 12 year old boy Edwin and a chatty ghost Velu, and the events that happen thereafter. 

Intriguing and gripping, this story needed a cover which was just as striking. From the simple character sketch of a little Kochi boy from the fishermen community, mixed with the magic and mystery of a ghost's presence, this cover incorporates handmade typography to reflect that chaos. 

The insides have watercolor illustrations reflecting each event as the story progresses.
