Philosophy Made Simple

I majored in philosophy, and I can't remember anything about elephant trunks and cowboy boots. Can anyone help a brother out?

For a book titled "Philosophy Made Simple", that's a pretty complicated cover.

Go dig on James Victore's design for "What is Philosophy?" by Gilles Deleuze

I did the illustration for this jacket, and read the manuscript a year before it came out: it's a novel about a guy who retires to an avocado farm in Texas, and befriends a neighbor's elephant. He picks up and reads a book titled "Philosophy Made Simple" and tries to use it as a lens through which to see his life. It is a charming and whimsical work of fiction, NOT an scholarly post-modern treatise.
