Book, 120 x 180 mm, 488 pages, hardcover. Graphic design and cover illustration by My Hellsten

Graphic design for the novel »Tid för vila« by the Singapore author Johann S Lee, Bokförlaget Tranan. The story takes place in Singapore’s youth obsessed gay circles and traditional morality is set against dissolved boundaries. The main character Kuang Ming  is longing for another life style than the hedonistic life – with open relationships, superficial values and numerous parties – that he is used to. He yearns for »quiet time« (Tid för vila) – the term a friend uses to indicate that it is time for the children to settle down after a day of play.
