What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
It is a modern fiction book about the importance of remembering the generations of one’s family (please, take into the account that it is neither a family saga, nor a historical novel).
It is a modern fiction book, so the cover should correspond with the genre. The historical novel meets modern fiction. The main idea of the book is quite interesting, so we would like to see an original solution for it in the cover design. Seeing the cover, people should be thinking to themselves, “Yes, it clearly reflects the main idea of the book.”
We are looking for a designer with original ideas who can work with fonts. We would like to get an interesting cover with an unusual font choice.
Explanation of the title
The title is a play of the words. In Ukrainian, "Pokrov" literally means the "Intercession of the Theotokos", but we do not need any references to the religious feast in the cover design. The author wants to emphasize a different meaning. In the context of the story, "Pokrov" refers to the blood ties - it could be translated as "blood relation", since the main characters are trying to find all the members of the family connected by blood.
Book title: Покров

Short plot description:
The story begins in 1843 and ends in our times, in 2013. The family was cursed, and in order to lift this curse the main heroes should remember all seven generations of their family by tracing the stories of 128 ancestors. A lot happens here – all these events enrich the plot making it mesmerizing, captivating and unique.
Key words: the family tree, silhouettes, generations, continuity of times, the events at the beginning of the book are far removed from us in time.
