Malka attempts to escape the horrors of the Holocaust by hiding out in the Christian neighborhoods of Warsaw.
The cover typeface--Frank Ruhl Libre, designed by Yanek Iontef--reflects the Latin portion of a redesign of Frank Ruhl, "the most ubiquitous Hebrew typeface in print” that is used in many Israeli newspapers and magazines. There are no Hebrew-language characters in this book, but the typeface is intended to complement and create a strong connection to the language.
Looking out a window is an important part of this book, so I looked for images of windows, especially dirty windows.
For this title I've created the full cover and interior.
These were the two final cover options, both with images of dirty windows and both with Latin counterparts to Hebrew typefaces. The author liked aspects of both covers, so I overlaid one on top of the other to create the final image above.
