The ship is made of books... The Night Circus by CaylaLydon The ship is made of books... The Night Circus by CaylaLydon
"The ship is made of books, its sails thousands of overlapping pages, and the sea it floats upon is dark black ink." - The Night Circus

This is my interpretation or vision of this description from The Night Circus! A few days ago I was privileged enough to have Erin Morgenstern post my drawing of Tante Padva to her fb page! I know, how amazing. So While on her page I saw that she had posted this quote with a challenge to all the fan artists to try and depict that scene... So here it is!

I am disappointed with the quality the scanner has produced, It is way lighter here than in life, the sea is way blacker and the sky a deep purple. But hey ho.

So the sail is made of pages from books and the boat itself too, the boat shape was just made up from my head and so whether it is correct in any way i am not sure (never drawn a boat before). I added the red scarves to the sales for all you Reveurs, Made the back of the boat one large book on its back, the middle an open book, and the front a stack of books i love. Books on their sides made up the sides of the boat, so the spines are facing upwards all around, if that makes sense. I was contemplating writing on the books but decided against it... and added the compass style clock as a reminder of herr Theissen and also instead of a moon.

Anyway after all that... Hope you like it!!!

This is amazing. This scene is one of the few scenes I had trouble imagining when reading the book, it seemed too dreamy and impossible. But this is great, and I love the little red details and how you put the names of the books there.
