I would love to show few of my last finished books covers. Those are for four volume story about polish Spitfires. First volume was published long time ago but next three will be in next year or two. I finished covers for two of them (front and back).

First: two shoots of Spitfire Mk IXc belonged to Polish Fighting Team in Tunisia in 1943. PFT was also called as “Skalski’s Circus”, from name of its commander Stanislaw Skalski. It was most effective flight of 145 Sqn in this period (from march to may 1943)

And second: Spitfire Mk IXc from 308 Sqn. “City of Krakow” RAF. Plane of its leader S/Ldr Witold Retinger. First image show airplane in autumn 1944 second few months earlier still with invasion strips under wings.

Nice work on the Spitfires! My favorite is the third one. I love the colors and the perspective shows off those characteristic graceful Spitfire wings perfectly.
