The Year of Magical Thinking

The Year of Magical Thinking

Alfred A. Knopf, New York, New York, 2005

Description

Juror Notes

This simple but stark cover flawlessly echoes the starkness of the story inside. Its quiet classicism—almost stoic—sets the stage for Didion’s tale without resorting to emotionalism.

Quiet color shift in letters adds a subtle layer of complexity.
