Big Two-Hearted River

Chris Wormell was commissioned by HarperCollins to create the cover and interior artwork for their new centennial edition of Ernest Hemingway’s landmark short story, “Big Two-Hearted River” – one of the finest stories of the outdoors in American literature.  See all the illustrations below as well as process shots of Chris’ traditional wood engraving technique, using hand-cut English Boxwood blocks pressed in an original 1850’s letterpress.
