Escaped from the jaws of death, The Krakatau Tragedy

Author Rick Blekkink asked us to design the cover of his new novel 'Ontsnapt uit de kaken van de dood, De Krakatau Tragedie' (Escaped from the jaws of death, The Krakatau Tragedy) 

We asked international photographer Roni Bintang to take some photos around the area of the just erupted volcano in Indonesia. Roni took stunning photos of which we picked one that was perfect for Rick's book. The photo is NOT photoshoped! The vulcanic ashes covered the whole area, but the flowers kept on growing. Mega designed the title and overall design.

We will post links on where to buy it asap as 50% goes to charity.
