Kafka Undercover

Famous book designer takes crack at K.

Print Email
(Peter Mendelsund)

Angst-riddled Kafka meets book cover design giant Peter Mendelsund in the design aether this week via his latest blog post on Jacket Mechanical. Modern considerations of the Central European scribe being a favorite of ours and our contributors, it is a treat to peruse, not only the phenomenal visual stimuli, but also Mendelsund’s behind-the-design-scenes inner monologue as he wrestled to align his style with that of Kafka. “There’s just something about Kafka- and what this something is, is so very hard to pin down,” he writes.
