Anna Karenina Cityscape

This image is from an art project I did for my digital design class, but I wanted to share it because, of course, it’s book-themed. The assignment was to use Adobe Illustrator to make a cityscape that is panorama shaped, and I had the idea to make it look like a scene was sort of emerging from the pages of a book.

I chose Anna Karenina because I always get really strong sensory images from that novel, and I also wanted to make a Russian cityscape. So I copy and pasted in the text from the very beginning and the very end of the novel on the two pages you can see, and created the  Moscow cityscape in between with the train, because the train is so central to the novel.

Hope you like it! Let me know what you think in the comments.
