Mr Adams Last Crusade book cover

I took an opportunity to redesign the book cover for the biography “Mr. Adams Last Crusade,” by Joseph Wheelhan. The book is about John Q Adams, and his campaign against slavery after his presidency. John Q Adams was the first ever president to be photographed, the capital building had not been remodeled into the building that we see today, and anti-slavery petitions play a major role in the book so I wanted to incorporate into the design of the book.
