The Stories of John Cheever

The Stories of John Cheever

Doyle Partners, New York, New York, 1999

Description

I was very aware that a cover representing an author’s lifetime of writing shouldn’t impose itself on the content. On the other hand, it shouldn’t be a lifeless cover. I decided to keep the cover monochromatic and to use various shades of red, but layered the reds to create a wider range of hues.
