Illustrations and sources

This week I'm working on a new (second) edition of my father's first novel, Three Treasures, set in 1643, during the English Civil War. I've edited it, and am now drawing various illustrations and maps based on the period.

These are a few examples:

The first and third are based, respectively, on an old painting and a woodcut I found online, the second is from an engraving of seventeenth century Dorchester in Wessex Images, by John Chandler, that I picked up in our local curiosity centre.
