Sayonara, Gangsters

Sayonara, Gangsters

Chip Kidd Design, New York, New York, 2004

Description

Sayonara, Gangsters is an experimental novel about a poet teaching writing to a classroom full of gangsters in Tokyo. The jacket works as a secret decoder—you can read the title only when it’s wrapped around the book. In this way it performs the same function as the teacher does—it makes sense of otherwise senseless language.
