We just finished the book design for Geertje Suhr’s second book, the novel Learning About Love, published by Culicidae Press. The cover is based on a painting owned by the author of the some fishermen on the Thuner Lake in Switzerland. In the background one can see the Niesen mountain. The protagonist of the novel got engaged in the hotel looking out on the Thuner Lake from the village of Gunten, not far from where the fishermen ply their trade.
We added a purplish-red color to the original painting to unify this cover with the cover design for the first book by Suhr, The German Exchange Student, to be translated into English (also published by Culicidae Press).
Below please find some earlier versions of the cover, as well as several page spreads from the book interior.
