Fledgling Press Book Cover Design
March 10, 2014

I was recently asked to create a book cover an upcoming book called “Boy Soldier and Beyond”. I depicted boys joining the army but leaving as men as my main inspiration for this story.

I focused completely on this transition as the author was a young man (boy) when he joined the army in his teens but through years of service, his training and many experiences he left the army as a man.

I think this book is great for people who have an interest in the army life but for people who aren’t that interested in the army it will be less appealing and for some may be a difficult read. But in fairness to the author he does state in the first place who his target audience is for this book and that again is for people who have an interest in the army life, who were in the army previously and who are in the army now.

It was quite a fun project to work on though and something quite different to what I’ve done before.
