For the cover I worked with two important elements from the book: the garden and a sunflower. In the book Bill meets the girl in the birdbath in his garden, and I wanted to capture that natural, garden-vibe in the cover. By working with plants, flowers and natural foliage I built the composition of the garden. To further explore the natural theme I worked with a color palette inspired by Monet’s water lilies paintings.
The birdbath mentioned in the book has the shape of a sunflower, a beautiful shape to incorporate in the cover! I designed a mandala-like sunflower to embellish the title, giving it just that extra magic that’s in the book as well.
