Adventures of Hucklberry Finn

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (Tom Sawyer's Comrade) was published in 1884 in England and 1885 in the U.S. The story takes place in the Mississippi Valley "forty to fifty years ago," or about the time of Twain's own boyhood in Hannibal, Missouri, a town much like Huck’s hometown, St. Petersburg, Missouri. Unlike his imaginative friend Tom Sawyer, who reads chivalric adventure stories and loves to play games of make believe, Huck is a realist.

I so love that you mentioned that huck was a realist. He's such a little synic in this novel. so many of my favorite lines can't be published here as they would make most blush. :)

Love the layers and bold colors on this one, it really caught my eye! I also love the way you distressed the Huck image so it really does look like the title page from an old book, it's wonderful.
