the Air Ministry account of the part played by Coastal Command in the battle of the seas, 1939-1942
Air Ministry - Great Britain, 1942
During the war, Britain’s beaches took on a defensive purpose and this book shows the seaside in action. The designer of this cover has taken artistic licence in order to portray the sea front at work. By using a telescope, the artists can depict the view out at sea as well as on the coast in the reflection of the lens. Using this composition the designer can create the drama and narrative from two locations in one scene.
