I read this fantastic novel by Rainbow Rowell way back and fell in LOVE with it. I remember posting on Tumblr a quick sketch of a fun idea to remake its cover - purely for fun and partly a tribute to the wonderful book that it is. The design received a generous amount of reception online, with Rainbow finding it soon after, followed by her publisher, who then reached out to me informing me of a very exciting news.
I'm so excited to share that my used-to-be-a-little-fan-made design made its way to print and is now gracing the cover of the new Dutch edition of Eleanor & Park!
I recently received a copy for myself sent by Rainbow as she has an extra copy with her, and looking at the cover in the flesh feels so surreal!!
I will be sharing the fanmade design and the published version below:
Here is the first design I shared on Tumblr:
After a couple of tweaks, we agreed to have the cover look like this:
And here it is in all its published glory!
