Looking back to WWI

We’ve done a number of book covers in the past for Harry Clacy, a local author who has branched out in a number of different military topics after starting with his own army service memoirs.

This is his most recent publication – edited diaries from WWI. We used some of the classic WW1 recruitment posters as inspiration for the design, taking a photo of the diaries themselves together medals and a recreation of a contemporary military map.

The diaries themselves are fascinating – and unusual from an ordinary soldier as this was strictly against the rules. You can a copy here.
