Cover art for 008 and 009

We have finalized Yuko Zama's designs for The Middle of Life (Die ganze Zeit) (GW 008) and The Punishment of the Tribe by its Elders (GW 009) so I thought I would post them here. Excited to get these out into the world. If all goes well they will be available by mid-January, 2013.


  1. It is Oswald Egger's rendering of what we (in English) call the Island of the Serpents in the Black Sea. I guess it was called Leuke (by the Greeks) and Alba (by the Romans). In Greek literature it appears as sanctuary for Achilles. In a part of the book "Die ganze Zeit" used in GW 008, Egger is discussing the bifurcation of the Danube and how one arm enters into the Black Sea near this island. Apparently, although we think of the story of Achilles as a Greek legend, its origins are from somewhere near the source of the Danube.
