I grew up as a book worm, especially history books. Not only I love reading, but I love the book as an object. I love looking at books, I love the physical contact with them. And I love book covers, regardless what the popular saying tells us.
Being asked to design a book cover is getting as close from nirvana as I can. I also wrote books, although one day I suddenly stopped. But I encountered these old friends again and I started to design a cover for them too.
