Description

On 2 August, 216 BC, Hannibal of Carthage faces the largest Roman army ever assembled. Aemilius Paullus and Terentius Varro, the Roman consuls, have led eight legions and their Italian allies onto the field of Cannae, fully intending to defeat Hannibal and end the Second Punic War. By nightfall, over fifty thousand Roman soldiers will litter the field, and the second of August will be remembered as one of the blackest days in Roman history.

"Darkness over Cannae" depicts this one day in southern Italy, through the eyes of seven men fighting in the battle, on different portions of the field, and on both sides of the war.

On 142 pages, and in 77 illustrations, Rome's most traumatic defeat, and Hannibal's greatest triumph comes to life.

I wrote and illustrated this book in 2014, and published it after an incredibly successful crowdfunding campaign. This is the second edition.

You can choose "with sketch". That's a little sketch done for you on page 3 of the book (just before the double spread of the plain of Cannae under a starry sky), in reddish pencil, of one of the characters. (And yes, that really is your sketch, not part of the printing - a lot of people seem to think I forgot the sketch. I'll take that as a compliment!) See the fifth photo above for examples.

Ships in a sturdy wraparound cardboard sleeve. If you want tracking/insurance, you can select it as an extra item from my shop! etsy.com/listing/248114723/

International taxes/customs may apply.

I gave this book to a friend, and she was really happy with it. Pictures and comment are amazing, and the book design is cool too. It's the real delight for any fantasy- and art-lover!)

Beautiful books of art from an artist I think I've been following since I was first allowed to use the internet... the Silmarillion art brings me so much joy!

I have admired Jenny Dolfen's work online for years. She truly brings Tolkien's Arda to life. It is a true pleasure to have this print.

Shipping policies

My prints are packaged flat, backed with cardboard and wrapped in a transparency bag, and come in sturdy cardboard envelopes. The same goes for originals (additionally padded).

Stickers ordered on their own are sent in a regular envelope, padded with paper.

Oversize special edition prints or originals larger than 19 inches are packaged in long cardboard boxes (think tubes, just not round).

If you would prefer any order to be trackable, choose the "extra protection/tracking" item along with your order.

Originals are always sent insured as a registered letter (unless you wish to risk sending them uninsured); this is already considered in the shipping cost. In some countries, taxes may apply.

If nothing else is stated in the item description, all my originals are painted with lightfast materials on archival paper. I use Daniel Smith's granulating paints in most of my work, so if any originals (or prints) have a flaky texture in them, that is intentional.

I usually send shipments out the day after they were ordered. Keep in mind that, depending on your time zone, if you order something in the morning it may already be afternoon for me. My local post office is a total mess, so I have to take parcels to the next town, which usually takes a day or two.

Within Germany, they ship via Deutsche Post. Outside Germany, I send everything by Air Mail. Times range from one day (Germany) to a week (most of Europe) and two to four weeks (America, southern and Eastern Europe, Canada, Asia). In rare cases, especially to the US, Canada, and Mexico, packages may take four to eight weeks.
