"Elementary, my dear Watson..."

With a second series of the successful BBC reimagining starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman currently filming and a sequel to the Robert Downey Jnr and Jude Law blockbuster due for release later this year, the world is going Sherlock Holmes crazy.

Having already designed a series of reprint books detailing the 'further adventures' of Holmes (you can read about the design process of those, here), we were asked to work on a spin-off series of original novels.

Here's the final cover to The Breath of God, by Guy Adams. The brief was to design a cover which had a more illustrative/narrative feel – something which actually told the story rather than a collection of graphic elements like the previous series design. The second book cover in this new series, also by Adams, is currently under wraps, but it's a doozy...

And here's a couple of covers from the successful Further Adventures of Sherlock Holmes series for comparison:
