BOOK JACKET

Don Quixote de La Mancha is one of my favorite books not only because is representative of the Spanish literature, but also because it broke the literary schemes given at that period of time. Its author, Miguel de Cervantes, created two different characters that lived in a world of fantasy which retold the stories found in fiction books. Therefore, my design aims to illustrate Don Quixote as the master mind hero whose helmet houses a smaller figure, Sancho Panza, a loyal squire and devoted follower. Both are sitting on top of books, symbols of the adventures they conquered.
I'm still working on the back. I'm not really sure about the decorative details in the corners, so, I'm open to any suggestions :)
