Freelance book design for local author Karen Guest, for Barefoot to Boeings: Memoirs of a jet jockey.


Barefoot to Boeings is a memoir based on the life of Brian Crane, a pilot who once walked barefoot to school in country New South Wales, Australia.


The client provided high quality scans of original photographs of Brian and his aircraft, as well as Brian’s pilot logbooks. These were layered carefully to create a nostalgic feel and create a sense of adventure for potential readers.
