"A Scandal in Bohemia"

eBook Cover and Layout Design

Dimensions: Device Dependant

"A Scandal in Bohemia" is a short story by none other than Sir Arthur Conan Doyle making the story a tale of famed detective Sherlock Holmes. In it he crosses paths with a woman, Irene Adler, who manages to best him or near enough. He is contracted to procure a photograph from her by the King of Bohemia. As such I tried to incorporate as many elements of the story as possible in the cover design whilst still being fairly subtle.

Also needed was for me to design a new layout for the story in eBook form. This was done in HTML (with a few modifications as the Kindle uses a few new tags just for formatting text). I incorporated a few illustrations and pictures to add to the overall design and composition. Using html allows the format to be fluid, to conform to whatever device the user might be utilizing.
