Project Description


Douglas Dalby approached us with an idea for a memoir of Brendan Hughes, the architect behind the helicopter breakout from Mountjoy prison in 1972. Although it was a gritty, fast faced thriller, Douglas wanted the book to include unseen photographs from the time and have high production values. The cover was designed by Belfast artist Clem Bradley while we created the concept for the book and designed the style and internal pages.
