Making of the cover for my book "Call It Yourself..."

I am often asked: how much time does Kseniya Malakhova spend for making the covers to her books? I can say, that it takes much time. For example, the final variant of the cover to the book “Call It Yourself...” became the ninth and the last version out of many other different variants which were made and discussed. I cannot say that the rest versions of the covers were bad or not interesting, but anyway I have chosen the cover which you see today. Up to my mind, it doesn`t reflect the plot of the book only, but also it is being memorized by its uncommonness. The picture is made by a pencil. It is suggested that a person, who was painting the cover, was in a deep reverie and expressed the essence of the thoughts but didn`t focus on the precise and straight location of the lines. I think many of you, who have read the book "Call It Yourself...", will agree to this opinion  :)
