Chez Gertrud for Bayard Editions

Chez Gertrud's cover for Alf Jjetil Walgermo's novel, Ma Chere Soeurhas hit bookstores! Published by Bayard Editions, it is a gorgeous cover. 

Eli Anne is 16 years old and has just lost her younger sister. Bereft with grief, she refuses to delete her sister's Facebook profile, which she hopes will stop the reality of death feeling so real. She begins posting messages on the empty online profile, marking the beginning of a daily correspondence ... 

Chez's silhouetted cover draws parallels with the overwhelmingly huge void left in Eli Anne's life after her sister's death. The palette offers bursts of colour through the shadows of darkness, offering an optimistic introduction to a sensitive story. 

Stylistic and and clean, Chez's illustration is a beautifully attractive cover for this YA novel.
