Description

Zeno’s Conscience is a classic work of modernist literature written in 1923. At the behest of his psychiatrist, the main character, Zeno Cosini, begins writing his “confessions.” This takes us on a journey through his warped and self-deluded mind. He is also engaged in an endless pursuit to quit smoking. I just realized that the original request from editorial was to design a cover showing a scenic Italian vista. Oops.
