Legend of a Suicide is a much acclaimed story collection by first-time American author David Vann (only published in 2010 it took 10 years for Vann to find a publisher) which is composed of a novella and five short stories. Ahab decided to translate and publish the novella entitled Sukkwan Island. Set in the wild, icy landscape of Alaska, the story is an exploration of the authors father, his psychology, and ultimately his suicide, and a way of coming to terms with all of these. It is a story of despair and revenge.

Inspired by the photo above, the cover design idea needs little explanation. It can be seen in full in the portfolio section under 'books_AHAB collection.
