Three Lives - Russian cover

SEPTEMBER 2015 - Rare Russian Translation Discovered in Siberian Cave

Check out this bad boy! Whilst vigorously avoiding working today I discovered this picture on the internet (the bit about the Siberian cave wasn't strictly true). It's the cover for the Russian translation of Three Lives of Tomomi Ishikawa and at only 287 rubles it's a bargain! It's published by AST in Moscow. Бенджамин Констэбл «Три жизни Томоми Ишикава»


If anybody can read in Russian and can find any reviews of this edition, feel free to let me know. ;-)

Here is an early view of the teaser for THREE LIVES OF TOMOMI ISHIKAWA


This is the first of a series of four teasers created not only to accompany my books but because I wanted to have a project that combined images, words and music.
