Gyldendal – Book cover for Forestillinger om Ana Ivan
We’ve made the cover for Mikkel Rosengaard‘s first novel Forestillinger om Ana Ivan (The Premature Death of Ana Ivan), available January 2016. It features what might at first glance look like just a clock, but is a clock with 14 hours on it instead of the usual 12. This subtle, hopefully effective, sleight-of-hand-like manipulation refers to a central theme in the book – a rift in time, years missing, chronological disorder.
A hidden feature, one that won’t be noticed by many, but hopefully be a delightful surprise for those who do, is the glow-in-the-dark ink on the numbers and arms of the clock. Close the book, turn off the lights, and for the next 15-20 minutes, these parts will glow as they glowed on the watch face of the real clock.
