This is a front and back mock-up book cover to David Grann's The Lost City of Z. The book is about Grann's search to uncover the mystery of Percy Fawcett, the last great Victorian explorer who fell in love with the Amazon and became obsessed with his search for a supposed "city of gold". Fawcett eventually disappeared into the jungle and was never heard of again. The concept for this piece was a sort of before and after portrait of the explorer.
