This is another upcoming children's book – The little lady and the dragon. For the cottage and the little lady I use cardboard, the flowers in the window is aquarelle paintings, the stones are made of clay and painted with aquarelle. There will be a dragon, a cow, an apple tree, flowers and a lot of fire :)
Yes, we have sold copies we yet don't have (Booho on the playground). Since the order is bigger than the amount of books (300) we had made by print-on-demand in September 2006. The distributor of the libraries gave Booho pretty nice reviews in their magazine and the result of that is the order of 480 books. Booho is about to be printed in offset. Yippey :D
I made this cover for a female network group – Magma. It's an anthology with stories from life itself. Kackel (eng. cackling) is an allusion to women's stories which often are dispatched as babble, yacketyyak or cackling from the poultry yard. These stories are scary, funny, sad, happy.
The typefaces are Gretel (the cross-stitch) and Fransina (in the bubbles and reference text. Not yet released).
