I have recently done a few covers for Baronet, a publishing company in Czechoslovakia who has the Czechoslovakian translation rights to many well known romance novels. A lot of times when a publishing company gains the translation rights, they have to have a new cover created. That’s where I come in. I have to admit, I’m quite giddy about this, but shhh! Don’t tell them! I have to play it cool and professional. 😉
Our most recent project was on the cover for the Czechoslovakian version of Beatrice Small’s “Beloved”, translated to “Milovaná“.
The print editions are hardcover not paper back, and I do not add the back text, or inner flap information because, well I don’t read Czechoslovakian. So I leave it blank for the publishing company to add. The hardcover wrap is what makes the overall flattened image look so long compared to my usual paperback print editions.
