The saying: “You can’t judge a book by its cover”, is maybe true for the most novels but not for Weinkrampf! To put it more strongly: the cover of the novel Weinkrampf!, whether one likes books or not, is an almost perfect reflection of the content. And thats what’s important for the book and it’s cover. One must have a good idea, by looking at it, what the novel is all about. In one way, the way of the eyes, the title is suddenly less important, and also the name of the author. A good cover attaches the attention of a potential buyer of the book. You can even say that this is maybe the most important thing in the decission making process of a potential reader: the attraction of the cover. Without this attraction the book is probably not being sold all.
But when one opens the book it’s suddenly all about the quality of the written prose, but that’s of later concern.
First we take a closer look at the cover of Weinkrampf!, designed by dutch graphic artist Klaas Hiddinga. It’s a perfect way of introducing some of the more important characters of the novel.
Of course we also tell you in due time more about the writer of the novel and the choosen title: the german-sounding Weinkrampf!
