Seumas Milne
The Enemy Within

Book Cover, 129 x 198mm paperback
Verso Books

Milne’s book is the definitive account of the 1984/85 miner’s strike. The cover references the design of The Sun from that era, the newspaper having consistently taken a strong position against the miners during the strike. The text-heavy front cover allowed for a much less dense back cover, featuring a contemporary photograph of Margaret Thatcher.

Commissioned by Andy Pressman at Rumors.
