Book Covers for a Classic

Fail-Safe is classic cold war era book first published in 1962. We decided to use it as a basis to test out various styles for a potential future book cover. A key character in the book, the B-58 Hustler bomber, was the first super-sonic bomber is the US fleet. We captured some pubic domain B-58 images as well as images from the 1964 movie including Henry Fonda (the President) and Larry Hagman (the President's interpreter).
