ROBERT MERLE COVERS

ROBERT MERLE COVERS


Another year, another fantastic assignment from Helikon Publishing!

After acquiring the hungarian publishing rights for the complete works of Robert Merle they offered me the task to design the covers (hard cover and jacket) for all 13 major titles.

Other than some technical requirements they granted me absolute creative freedom — which I immensely appreciate.
