One of my favourite book covers ever is the English one of “The Time Traveler’s Wife”. I don’t think I’ll ever read the book again but I’ll keep it simply for the cover. Little girl, a man’s shoes, but the man is gone. I liked the cover even before I knew what the book was about. But now that I know I don’t think they could have come up with a better one.
Why didn’t the German publisher use it, too? I don’t know. Are there rights issues maybe? Anyway, they didn’t but used some twigs that remind me of Japan. Nice, I like the colours and the feminine touch but it just doesn’t say a word about the book.
As far as the title is concerned, there is not much to say about it. It is just the literal translation of the original. And for once it sounds ok.
