A BOOK BY ITS COVER : #2 — After Dark

Cover design by Iris Weinstein.

I know, I know. After Dark again?? What is this, the FIFTH time I’ve talked about this book on my blog? But I honestly do like the cover. It’s pretty, not to mention clever as it captures several motifs that feature in the story: sleep (in the face of the sleeping woman); nighttime (sleeping woman against a dark background, the iridescent dots that glimmer like stars); the urban city (the dots forming an almost grid-like pattern across the cover).

    1. Ooh, 1Q84 is a good one!

      That HHhH edition is interesting. I think it’s the first time that I’ve seen stuff printed down the page edge by the publisher.
