“charlottas fantastische reise nach flüsterleise” is a sci-fi book for adults who are young at heart. you accompany a little girl named charlotta on her travels through the galaxy on a seagull. the story is playfull and fun but with a very dark humour not suited for kids. the cover is designed to transfer the overall feeling of the story into a visual concept without looking particularly like a childrens book. this project was created to participate in a cover design contest.
