The cover artwork for the German edition of Charlie Higson’s first Young Bond
novel, SilverFin, has finally been revealed. Title decision took some time, as alternate cover designs were under consideration. As expected, it was finally decided to go close with the known eel artwork, looking very much like the UK edition, but with a new Young Bond logo.
As the German title Stille Wasser sind tödlich (‘Silent Waters Are Deadly’) is a bit long to simply replace the word SilverFin on the cover, this one says "James Bond" in bold letters, with the actual novel title in smaller letters below. The translation was done by Petra Koob-Pawis.
As reported earlier by CBn Stille Wasser sind tödlich will be published by Arena Verlag, a renowned German publisher of children’s books, and will be available on August 15, 2005. The book will have 352 pages at a size of 14×21 cm (roughly DIN A5) with an embossed front cover. Price will be 9,90 (Germany), 10,20 (Austria) and CHF 18,10 (Switzerland), ISBN 3-401-05837-1
