Erlkönig Thumbnail


Album cover design and illustration. Under supervision of Darko Birsa. NTF OTGO, May 2019

Cover design concept based on the eponymous musical composition from 1815 by Franz Schubert, itself based on the poem by J. W. Goethe; Erlkönig.

Where his father sees only a streak of fog, a dying child in his delirium sees the Elf King in his crown and cape. Where the father sees branches of a willow, he feels Kings' hands reaching for him.
