I posted a few days ago about book covers and the importance of having good cover art.
Back in the late 1990s one of New Zealand’s best known artists, Colin Wynn, did the cover artwork for my history of the Royal New Zealand Air Force.
Colin is the official artist of the Royal New Zealand Navy, and he also did the cover art and a lot of the interior paintings in my book on New Zealand’s naval story, which wasn’t strictly devoted to the RNZN, but which they took up as their official sixtieth anniversary volume in 2001.
Both books are long out of print (but let me know if you’d like to read ‘em – I’m wondering about having them re-published).
He’s just relaunched his website – it’s at http://colinwynnart.com/ And he does far more than just military. Colin’s art is definitely worth checking out.
