Dave Stevenson illustrates book cover for Allman Brothers bio

Dave Stevenson was commissioned by St. Martin's Press to do the hand lettered typography and illustration for the Allman Brothers Band biography, titled One Way Out.  Dave's work is foil stamped on the cover, and the art director Rob Grom sent us a photo of the actual book to show the effects.  We think it turned out great!
