William Heirens: His Day in Court
This book is about an infamous murder trial in the 1940′s that convicted a teenager of three brutal murders. The celebrity of the case has kept William Heirens in jail despite compelling evidence to suggest his innocence. We used the most widely recognized news photo of William Heirens and scanned it right from the newspaper and enlarged it to give that gritty, dated look.
The Gospel According to Job
We used a background of parched, dry earth to illustrate the severe tribulation and testing Job went through. The drops of water suggest the hope and restoration Job found through remaining faithful even during his darkest hours. We goldstamped and embossed the title for added POS value.
Murder Next Door
This book is a compilation of true stories about “everyday people” commiting gruesome murders. We decided to show a row of houses representing suburbia with smoke coming out of the chimney blood red. In the upper window you see your neighbor about to murder his victim.
This book chronicles the story of Steven Linscott and how he was arrested and imprisoned for a murder he never commited without any physical evidence. We showed a portrait of Steven on a black background to suggest the darkness and despair of his wrongful imprisonment. Behind him, you see his shadow juxtaposed against prison bars.
How to Save Your Kids From Ruin
We decided to play off the phrase “rock-solid children” and used marble textured backgrounds. For the title, we made the letters 3D and had the letters crumbling in the word “ruin”. For the subtitles and author info, we made the letters look like thay were carved in the marble.
The Power of His Presence
We used a strong type treatment coupled with imagery of the sun rising over the globe from the perspective of outer space to suggest the awesome power of God, the creator.

Letters Never Sent
This book is about the hurt the author experienced growing up as a “missionary kid” and how she became whole through writing letters to her parents, even though they had long passed away. We used this image of a little girl dressed in nice church clothes, but in a reflective pose in a field that suggests a foreign land.
