Vote for your favorite book cover!

January 17, 2011

Stonebrook Publishing, Nancy L. BaumannIn May, 2011, Stonebrook Publishing will release Storming the Tulips. This book chronicles the stories of twenty children who were contemporaries of Anne Frank, who remember the crushing, defeating years of the Nazi occupation in the Netherlands. Originally written in Dutch by Ronald Sanders and revised and translated by Hannie Voyles, the story is told from the perspective of the children in Hannie’s school who watched as their friends and classmates disappeared and were then systematically exterminated. Told through the first-hand accounts of twenty former students, the book presents the children’s perspective as they struggled to understand a world gone mad, the only reality they knew.

    Definitely, Storm Approaching……seems the rest of the voters agree. Have to say though, I really don’t like the slant on the script……just my take on it. The soft pastel colors of the flowers represent their peaceful world, as the “storm approaching” implies the horrors and and uncertainty of the impending doom, also……just my take on it !! Love and appreciate the chance to have an input……Its been fun, just my take on it !!!!

    What I really like is the illustration on the top of your home page with the heading, “storm clouds gather, threatening the tulips”,……just what I was thinking !!!

    Definately Storm Approaching. It depicts the whole coming story

    I like the storm cloud version combined with the black field with the copy in it on the Tulip Field version. The black field could be within the cloud area and fuse into the clouds, becoming part of the clouds. Maybe crop the cloud up higher showing less Tulip area and focus on the storm, but enhance the Tulips so they are really bright. I like the slanted Tulip version with the copy straight.
