Book cover design for WW2 young adult novel by John Boyne, the author of The Boy in the Striped Pajamas.
Sought to produce an engaging design that connects with the time period and history, while still feeling current and fresh for a young adult audience.
A hand drawn title feels youthful and urgent, set against a wash of red. A child’s face is obscured by a Hitler Youth emblem. Topographic lines connect with the mountain setting from the title, and also suggest the confusion and distortion of a young mind influenced by Nazi ideology, from Hitler himself.
