Illustrated Bookcover: Midnight’s Children

Salman Rushdie’s  groundbreaking Midnight’s Children was published exactly 40 years ago. On its 40th anniversary, it has been reissued with a new introduction by Rushdie himself. I did not read it when it was first published. I am reading it now and at 600+ pages the going is a little slow. But I will finish it. I don’t know if I will find it as great as it has been proclaimed to be. Meanwhile, I decided to design a cover of my own for the book, something that reflects the historical nature of the text.
