Wicklow author Keith Ryan approached me to design a cover for his first book ‘Blue Star Rising’. He wanted to convey a subtle nod to Dublin GAA which is an underlying theme but he didn’t want it to take away from the other main theme which is Dickie Doyles complicated family relationships.
I created a subtle photo montage based on the main themes of the book overlayed with bold text and the colour blue to bring the themes together. This created a standout look when it is placed on bookshelves. Blue Star Rising can be bought online at Amazon or in good bookstores throughout Ireland.
Blue Star Rising reached No.3 In Dubray Books Best Sellers Listing pre Christmas 2019.
