The Green Fairy Book

I've been thinking about re-covering a book lately - I'm reading Lieutenant Hornblower at the moment and the cover is hideous.

At home I have a possible first eddition of Andrew Lang's Blue Fairy Book. So when I saw this one in Oxfam today, I really wanted to cover it to make it that bit more special. I actually really like the cover on the original paperback:

The book, re-covered with a hard-back cover, burgandy ribbon and end papers, red headers.

I do want to incorporate a title onto the cover and spine, but I have no idea where I would start. I would want to somehow include the illustration from the paperback.

In the end I decided to use the paper I already had to finish the other notebook - here it is!
