Danny Wattin´s amazing book Herr Isakowitz skatt (Mr Isakowitz´s treasure) is spanning over the lives of five generations, from pre-war Germany to modern day Stockholm, this is a book like no other. A sad and humorous story of one of history's darkest chapters. Definitely worth reading. The book is also translated to several languages. 

 
If you have a family treasure you have to go and look for it. And that’s how my son, my father and I ended up on a treasure hunt in Poland.

To work with this book cover was a challenge. A balance between humor and tragedy without being to obvious. The documents used on the cover are authentic and the silhouettes are the characters own.

Our  first collaboration with Danny was to make illustrations and book cover design for his hilarious children´s book Pojken i Trädkojan (Treehouse Boy). Written in collaboration with 22 Swedish nine-year olds, Treehouse boy is a story about the art of balancing freedom with the desire to fit in. 

Love working with Danny - and hope to do it again soon!
