Meine fünf Jahre als Vater

Luftschacht is a Vienna-based publisher of contemporary literature. Known for their programmatic mix of children’s books, fiction and graphic novels, they seek to provide a wide range of interesting individual pieces beyond the limits of thematic constraints.

The cover design for the novel Meine fünf Jahre als Vater (My five years as father) is the debut of our cooperation. The novel, debut of Norwegian author Bjarte Breiteig, gradually deconstructs the seemingly perfect family life of its protagonist. It is a concise and sober portrait of a man whose life is entirely different from what it may appear on the surface. Just like the book’s language is clear and poignant, the cover design relies on a minimalist design idiom and thus visualizes the crumbling facade in reduced fashion.
