Deer Hunting with Jesus

Design by David Tran

"...(A) call to arms for fellow progressives with little real understanding of “the great beery, NASCAR-loving, church-going, gun-owning America that has never set foot in a Starbucks.”


This jacket most likely won't find a place in any design annual, but it's spot-on. The clear inference: Hey, progressives: see the pickup truck? The flag? The church? The small town you would never deign to visit? Well, guess who votes more often than you.

Well it's a "shoot from the hip" kind of cover that does draw you in... whether the views expressed are compelling or not I guess depends on your personal point of view, or, openmindedness.

BTW, the original title of the book was "Drink, Pray, Fight, and Fuck," and the cover was a Mike Caplanis drawing, here: http://bageant.typepad.com/photos/uncategorized/joe450a_1.jpg .

I feel sorry for the deer since they can't vote.
