Shawn McConnell is an Alaskan author and writer. He lives in Hoonah, Alaska where he enjoys boating and fishing on the waters of the inside passage.
A young boy on his way from New Archangel(Sitka), Alaska back to Russia is shipwrecked on the rugged coast of Alaska and forced to face the winter, the wild animals and the fierce local inhabitants as he tries to return home to be reunited with his father. The story is set in the early 19th century.
Children in the age range of ten to fifteen who enjoy adventure stories.
Book cover type
The book is set in the early 19th century and has Russian as well as Alaska Native and raw nature as key elements so fonts that reflect that feel as well as artwork that shows the nature elements is important. SE Alaska is cloudy, thickly forested and surrounded by the sea. Hostile environment, unmatched beauty and adventure and danger are the elements I would like to tie together. I sketched a simple cover for initial publication of the kindle version but it is inadequate for a print version of the book. The image is included below.
It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their book cover.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
