Golf on The Rocks:
A Journey Round Scotland’s
Island Courses
Author: Gary Sutherland
Publisher: Hachette Scotland

Brief: Gary Sutherland was a lapsed golfer, until he acquired his late dad’s putter. After studying a crumpled golf map of Scotland, Gary decided to embark on a voyage. His target was to play 18 rounds of golf on 18 Scottish islands in honour of his dad, a ship’s captain who, when he wasn’t at sea, was never off the golf course.

Result: I wanted to give a scrapbook style to the cover whilst also giving the book stand-out for golf fans. By creating a number of sandy textures and a large divot, I endeavored to show that this book was more about the journey than the golf. Although Gary’s golf game is much better than the cover alludes!
