Hello, gentle readers!
My mom, Kaimana Wolff, has a new book coming out on March 27th. It’s called White Birds: Dreams for Dancers. Today, I get to reveal to you…the cover!
Well, both covers; the ebook cover is slightly different from the print cover.
As well, here’s the synopsis from the back of the book!
“In times of great trouble, great dreams come.”
Jane has spent years trying to forget such dreams. Her dreams are not pleasant; yet beautiful in their way. When such dreams keep coming, she decides it is time to pay attention to the dance she in which she finds herself.
Each dream is heralded by the image of a white bird, symbolic of the dissociative state resorted to by many victims of abuse.
These brief stories are poetic interpretations of some of life’s worst moments, tracing a heroic journey while revealing the arts of the warrior.
As you can see, there are subtle differences. The big thing with ebook covers is to make sure they’re legible, so the font size is quite a bit bigger.
In case you can’t tell, I designed both covers. The painting is by the late Gerry Laffra, my Opa and mom’s step-dad. Gerry did many paintings of wildlife, as well as a lovely portrait of my dog, Blue. The apartment is still decorated with his work, and ages ago he gave my mom this painting to use as a book cover.
I’m pretty proud of my work here. I think it’s clean, simple, and engaging. What do you think?
