Growing Up Grant: A Gay Life in the Shadow of Ulysses S. Grant

by Ulysses Grant Dietz

Hi, Ulysses,
This cover would catch every eye on a Barnes & Noble table. It’s a work of art! There is so much symbolism and metaphor going on, where shall I begin?  We have butterflies growing “up,” the colors of the rainbow. They are behind USG–their tales shadowing one another. Please scroll down for more design analysis and the entire cover.

Design Analysis

The butterfly a metaphor for evolution as well as the spectrum of life. I wanted to merge your era with USG’s era for a unique vibe and feel. The font is a little old-timey without being dated. 50s (now returning in style) linen background. I’ve colorized USG. Bottom line: this cover pops! It would make a great poster, too! Please scroll down for entire covers.

Please Note: Any imperfections and images yet to be ordered will be corrected upon design approval. Colors will render according to individual computer monitor settings. Print and digital are two different mediums. Please order a hard copy from the printer to review for color/tone adjustments. For example, gloss covers tend to print darker than matte.
