Gyldendal – Book cover for Den danske borgerkrig 2018-24
Kaspar Colling Nielsen’s novel Den Danske Borgerkrig 2018-24 – The Danish Civil War 2018-24 – is about the collapse of society as we know it, described from several centuries into the future by a wealthy 475 year old man, who has attained immortality (or something close) through the use of gene therapy. Published by Gyldendal.
The cover has a matte black background with only three colors: White, red and a metal foil, comprising text and depictions of central elements in the story – a border collie, stars, bullets, an AK-47.
We wanted a cover with a stark, distinctive look, a book that did not look like the rest of the books in the bookstore, and one that felt somewhat anachronistic, not quite of the present time, in accordance with the strangeness of the story.
