KAKO | NEW BOOK COVER FOR EDGAR ALLAN POE THE RAVEN
October 24, 2018
Excited to finally share this great book cover & interiors by KAKO for Edgar Allan Poe’s book The Raven for the client Companhia das Letras Publishing.
The Raven was released in Brazil as the second book of Companhia das Letras’ Edgar Allan Poe collection. It contains the original The Raven poem and two translations to Portuguese by Literature legends Fernando Pessoa and Machado de Assis. The book also brings three famous essays about poetry written by Poe himself and an essay by Paulo Henriques Britto analyzing both translations to Portuguese. Paulo Henriques Britto is a well-known awarded poet and professor and has translated more than one hundred books, including works by William Faulkner, Elizabeth Bishop, Byron, John Updike, Thomas Pynchon and Charles Dickens.
And again we are very fortunate to have the amazing veteran engraver Espedito Costa working on the cover.
