Something to Tell You, Danish edition

Design by Poul Lange

Just a quick post before I turn this over for a week to some guest bloggers. Be sure to stop by to see what they do; I know I will!

Earlier in the week I posted three editions of Hanif Kureishi's Something to Tell You. This afternoon, designer Poul Lange sent in the cover for the Danish edition. About the design, he wrote: "Since the book centers around a psychotherapist and the frantic swinger's scene in London, I thought I could bring those two elements together by creating a Rorschach Inkblot test out of pornographic images...suprisingly, the cover was immediately approved by the Danish editor." The Faber UK edition plays up the sex aspect of the story as well, but not quite like this...

PS: This made me think of Keenan's design for Joe Meno's The Great Perhaps. And that's a good thing :-)

Always... good? to see penetration on a book cover.
