cover art.

the best book since the new testament.

book arts show in london.  we shall not be able to attend on account of the whole being landlocked in wyoming thing.  but, thanks to the internet we can see the work, think about it, and admire from afar.  the premise:

[a] broad and varied spectrum of artists [invited] to paint, print, etch, sculpt, photograph, whatever their medium, whatever their style… [to] create a book cover for a novel of their choice, a book that has inspired them, a book that has had a profound impact on them or a book that they remember fondly as a child … all that we asked was that they create their original artwork to the traditional format and size of a Penguin book 198mm (h) x 129mm (w)”
