We were hired by Culicidae Press to design the novelization of a musical, Angels in the Snow, which has also been made into a film, for the late Douglas Larche who passed away in August of 2021. Our design for the book was complete when Doug died, so his daughter decided to go ahead and publish the book posthumously. The cover had to show the Berlin Wall as well as some of the actors in the musical. The only open parameters we had were the font choices and the background for the cover. Since some of the action in the musical involves the outdoors, we opted for a starry night sky, and we gave the main cover font a glow to evoke the snow of the book’s title.
Below are a few images of the book interior, and the cover is above.
