Competition work -'The bloody chamber and other stories ' by Angela Carter

Competition Work

Over the Christmas period, Ive been doing some work for the Folio Society's book competition. I had to pick at least 25 lines from three prescribed stories, and then illustrate the text i'd chosen. I also had to produce a book binding draft.  All the work is for Angela Carter's book, 'The Bloody Chamber and other Stories'. 

Th Bloody Chamber

'What is that  key?' I demanded for his chaffing had made me bold'.

Puss in Boots

'Dear god!' the lady says, and jumps. I see, too, ah, sentimental thing! clutches a well- thumbed letter.'Puss in Boots!'

The Company of Wolves

'See! sweet and sound she sleeps in granny's bed, between the paws of the tender wolf.'
