11.12_Before the Harvest

We have recently designed the book cover and jacket for a novel by Antony Bird, a story about the battle of Le Cateau, a battle which saved the Retreat from Mons and was instrumental in determining the course of the Great War. It is told through the eyes of six soldiers and officers, one of whom, Lt. Bernard Montgomery, would go on to become a field marshal. It was fought in the beet fields, in the towns and among the corn-stooks. It was the last British pitched battle of open warfare in the Great War, when the Somme and Ypres were just places on the map. Its a great read and now available to buy on Amazon.

We’ve been producing a series of marketing pieces for UKFT (UK Fashion & Textile Association) to highlight British designers at international trade shows.
