Excellent piece of work. It does remind me of the old-style of the 19th century. I'm reading the book now.

Thank you! Of course, this being the 21st century, it was possible to make a far more sophisticated cover than the 1908 one, no least thanks to all these awesome resources like scalable fonts and clipart, all free to use. (It only occurred to me after the fact that I was using three different sizes of the same font, a lavish luxury for a printing press from a hundred years ago and change.) But the spirit is there in a big way -- better than expected in fact. And it's all thanks to the creativity unleashed by computers and the Internet.
