Great Book Covers

We looked around our book shelf today, and noticed a lot of classics that we owned didn’t have the best book jacket designs. So we looked around the Interweb to find the best versions of some of the best books we have ever read and enjoyed and continue to enjoy. Some seem to be part of a great era of Penguin publishing, so are eerily minimal, and others have just classic illustrations. From Barron Storey’s legendary Lord of the Flies cover, to the perfect type treatment for Beckett, here are some examples of excellent graphic and illustrative book jacket design. —The Citrus Staff

“The Suburbanization of Mike Tyson”: A great read

Again, we are spending our waking hour reading things like this, “The Suburbanization of Mike Tyson” written wonderfully by Daphne Merkin. It is a big profile, about the former heavyweight champs new life in the suburbs of Las Vegas. Do we really believe that Tyson lives this calm existence? Its tough to say, but he will always be a fascinating read and character.

Even the beginning gets you hooked in a sort of simple, American fiction sort of way. Love the Hemingway reference.

The gold caps on his teeth are gone, as are the frenzied trappings of celebrity: the nonstop partying, the cars, the jewelry, the pet tiger, the liters of Cristal. Mike Tyson — who was once addicted, by his own account, “to everything” — now lives in what might be described as a controlled environment of his own making, a clean, well-lighted but very clearly demarcated place.
