A Música das Borboletas.


I noticed this morning that my blog and website have had a sudden influx of visitors from Portugal, which alerted me to the fact that A Música das Borboletas, the Portuguese translation of The Sound of Butterflies, must be out! It's a lovely cover, I think. I'm intrigued to see what will happen to the translation in the places where, in the English language version, I wrote some dialogue in Portuguese. I guess some copies will inevitably find their way to Brazil, and I wonder what the reaction to the book will be there (I did give it to a couple of genuine Brazilians to read before it was published).

Reminds me of my first ever question to you...it is a very evocative cover...I like them all, but my least favourite would have to be the US paperback cover. What I like about this one is the association of time...with the vine like leaves and the cracks, plus I like things with an aged look...very classy.

All of your covers are so beautiful. I love the antiqued look on this one. The Portugese translation is so lyrical.
