The senior editor of the non-fiction department of Gyldendal Publishers, Mette Korsgaard, wrote to me in June: “H.M. Queen Margrethe II of Denmark wishes to have your portrait of her, painted for the National Museum, on the cover of Thomas Larsen’s new book De dybeste rødder, which is based on interviews with her. Is it possible for you to approve this in writing?” The answer was: Yes Indeed. Honoured and with great pleasure.
Gyldendal designed the cover in a most sophisticated way by making a confluence between the title and the background of the painting which is a visualisation of what are the deepest roots (“De dybeste rødder”) of the kingdom of Denmark: Diagrams of the Jelling monuments with the tomb of Gorm the Old and the epitaph that has been called “the baptism certificate of Denmark”.
“De dybeste rødder” was released on October 27, 2016.
