Canongate UK (an independent publishing firm based in Edinburgh, Scotland) commissioned me to create the cover for the book ' The Oak Papers' by Dr. James Canton.  They were looking for some textures and real-like elements that could introduce the reader to the subject of the book: a homage to the oak tree and the important role it plays today in our landscape and in our lives.

I did some simple studies to understand the texture of the wood and also to propose an arrangement for the rings.
