Facebook Banner designed for 1066 Turned Upside Down

What a brilliant opportunity!

The 950th Anniversary of the Battle of Hastings is this calendar year, so the authors have come together to celebrate by writing nine stories of alternative history.

Book Cover Design – Dark Horse

Book cover design for John Bartlett – to be released late this year. I will be designing the full printed jacket for this book which is a prequel to John’s first book ‘Chequered Justice‘ available now.

I enjoyed this design as the client provided several fantastic photos of his son to be used on the cover. And it ties to the world of racing!
