The Great Shadow



For one of my masters’ classes, we had to work on the production of an out of copyright novel by a Scottish author. This project would be worked on throughout the whole semester and would entail everything from acquiring the text, editing, typesetting, and cover design among other tasks.

For my novel, I picked The Great Shadow by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. I selected this title because I want to work with a well-known author but decided not to go for the popular Sherlock Holmes books, while also showcasing other novels by Conan Doyle that were just as good but not so popular.

This project was selected for a small print run along with others from the course.
