Fantasma by Tanja Tiekso, S&S / Book cover illustration and design, 2022
World Illustration Awards 2023, Professional Category Winner (Book Covers)
The Most Beautiful Books 2022, Honorary mention
“This cover really stands out for me. The drawings form a delicate universe all their own.
Surrealistic combinations put together that invite you to study further. The cover is strong and at the same time playfully composed. It is attractive in the choice of materials, the typography and balanced by the partial symmetry of the separate elements, the color scheme and the connections in the arbor-like construction.
This spaciousness gives a clarity and openness and allows you to enter it, but also to walk around it full of admiration. The backside of the book has extra engaging images used as the Uppercase and enhances the ornamental character of the illustrations.”
