Napoleon in America e-Book Cover Design Award for Fiction

Matt Dawson’s cover design for Napoleon in America won first place in The Book Designer’s e-Book Cover Design Awards for February 2014 in fiction.

In submitting the cover, author Shannon Selin wrote:

For this alternate history adventure, UK illustrator Matt Dawson came up with an instantly recognizable Napoleon in a clearly American landscape (Texas), and — based on historic examples — “forged” Napoleon’s illegible signature into something readable but clearly identifiable for Napoleon fans.

Awards judge Joel Friedlander commented:

What a great concept, and the resurrection of Napoleon’s own handwriting makes it all the more believable.
