In "Hiroshima Cappriccios" by Leopold Federmair is an autobiographical story in which the author sees himself as a researcher of the inconspicuous. The setting is the province of Hiroshima between its traditions and modernity, in its dark history and flourishing present.
The cover illustration represents the contrast of these two worlds that the main character explores. It is a simple pencil drawing that gives it a rawness that highlights the unknown plus that makes it more down to earth. At the same time it is kept simple and clear. This gives the drawing a modern touch.
