Author(s): Peter Mendelsund


An original and visually engaging book cover can help make the difference between a flop and a smash, and over the years more than a few designers have taken the creative and mysterious process to levels of supreme beauty and imagination. Peter Mendelsund is that kind of designer and Cover is the story of his love affair with books. Amongst the many recognisable covers he has created are those for the American edition of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Vintage); collections of the works of Joyce, Kafka and Dostoevsky; Peter Carey; Martin Amis and more.
