    Default Book covers that make you look and wonder.

    This evening I was watching the amazing documentary film 'Spitfire' (excellent film documentary). I didn't expect to learn that much, but I did - the most surprising thing is that the Spitfire's wings are based on a German design..

    One of the contributors to the documentary was Geoffrey Wellum - a WW2 Spitfire pilot. He published a book called 'First Light' about his experiences ( I highly recommend it ). The book was also turned into a film of the same name (also highly recommended).

    Anyway, here's the point - I wanted to see if 'First Light' was on iTunes, but came across the re-designed book cover.

    I was stunned at the skill of the book cover design. All the elements of a dogfight are there in one concise design. Elegant and beautiful.

    I hope you take a look and feel the same.
