The Towers of Trebizond





Author / Rose Macaulay
Publisher / Farrar, Straus and Giroux
Cover Design / Charlotte Strick
Cover Art / Lindsey Mayer-Beug



This was a very fun project to work on. Charlotte had a wonderful idea that was inspired by Ellen Raskin's cover for E.M. Forester's A Passage to India, which was to put Aunt Dot riding a camel drinking tea.
We played with the idea of were the Union Jack should go and thought the cup was perfect. It winked at her heritage and character, amidst the Turkish motifs.
