He’s returned

Er ist wieder da, Timur Vermes

I just finished reading Er ist wieder da (English: He’s returned, Spanish: Ha vuelto) by Timur Vermes. It follows Adolf Hitler, who awakes in a back alley of Berlin in 2011, with no memory of his death or the intervening years. I liked the premise and although the book never really grabbed me, there were some great comedy moments.

It was recommended to me by one of the guys in the department I visited in Paderborn last year. The cover is a fantastic piece of graphic design.

Although it’s a German book, I read it in Spanish, my German isn’t that good. The English translation comes out later this year with the title Look who’s back.

    I would like to know the name of the designer of this book cover. I have spent two hours reading (everywhere) that the design is brilliant (and it is), but no one gives the name of the designer. Do you know?
    Thanks

      On the inside cover the design is credited to Johannes Wiebel of punchdesign, München.
