The second book cover illustration I did for the wonderful Jo Havens, and her new book „Once in Berlin“. It was a real joy to collaborate with her and I am very pleased with how the illustration turned out.

The book itself is a thrilling sapphic history adventure, which is best described by the following snippet:

„𝘖𝘯 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘦𝘷𝘦 𝘰𝘧 𝘸𝘢𝘳, 𝘢 𝘴𝘱𝘺 𝘧𝘢𝘭𝘭𝘴 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘩𝘦𝘳 𝘵𝘢𝘳𝘨𝘦𝘵. 𝘈 𝘱𝘰𝘭𝘺𝘮𝘢𝘵𝘩 – 𝘢 𝘨𝘦𝘯𝘪𝘶𝘴 – 𝘸𝘪𝘵𝘩 𝘴𝘦𝘤𝘳𝘦𝘵𝘴 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘤𝘰𝘶𝘭𝘥 𝘴𝘩𝘢𝘬𝘦 𝘢𝘱𝘢𝘳𝘵 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘷𝘦𝘳𝘺 𝘸𝘰𝘳𝘭𝘥, 𝘢 𝘸𝘰𝘮𝘢𝘯 𝘸𝘩𝘰𝘴𝘦 𝘵𝘳𝘶𝘦𝘴𝘵 𝘭𝘰𝘷𝘦 𝘪𝘴 𝘱𝘶𝘳𝘦 𝘮𝘢𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘮𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘤𝘴 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘸𝘩𝘰 𝘳𝘶𝘯𝘴 𝘢 𝘤𝘢𝘭𝘤𝘶𝘭𝘢𝘵𝘰𝘳 𝘸𝘩𝘦𝘳𝘦 𝘩𝘦𝘳 𝘩𝘦𝘢𝘳𝘵 𝘴𝘩𝘰𝘶𝘭𝘥 𝘣𝘦, 𝘧𝘪𝘯𝘥𝘴 𝘩𝘦𝘳𝘴𝘦𝘭𝘧 𝘦𝘯𝘴𝘯𝘢𝘳𝘦𝘥 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘦𝘯𝘵𝘢𝘯𝘨𝘭𝘦𝘥 𝘣𝘺 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘸𝘰𝘮𝘢𝘯 𝘵𝘢𝘴𝘬𝘦𝘥 𝘵𝘰 𝘴𝘵𝘦𝘢𝘭 𝘩𝘦𝘳 𝘳𝘦𝘴𝘦𝘢𝘳𝘤𝘩.
