Death and the Penguin

I set myself a project recently of doing mock book covers. First up is Death and the Penguin, by Andrey Kurkov. I did both English and Russian versions of the cover. I'm not sure how successful it is, though. The map I used in the collage is of Kiev.

 Smert' postoronnego 
The original Russian title means "death of an outsider" which is a bit generic sounding. It seems the book is far more popular in the UK than in Ukraine or Russia, I suppose because the English translator chose a much more eye-catching title

If you visit Kiev in winter, cozy cafes are perfect places to save yourself from cold. There is very snowy and frosty weather. Just find a place in a directory of Kiev cafes  to have a shelter, warm atmosphere and taste Ukrainian food. But in Ukraine Travel guide you will find much more then cafes. There is everything for comfortable Ukraine tourism including hotels, apartments, bars, pubs, taxis etc.
