The Terrible Privacy of Maxwell Sim, by Jonathan Coebelletristik9780670917389

There’s a new Jonathan Coe novel coming out, to be published by Viking (Penguin UK) on 27 May 2010. Here’s their somewhat curious cover design. I can’t decide if I love it or hate it… No word yet on if/when Random House will get around publishing it in North America, but on past form I […](image)

Taking a cue from the slick covers coming out of Bloomsbury UK, Vintage (Random House UK) deliver some more beautiful cover designs for Patricia Highsmith reissues (design and illustrations by Liam Relph & Michael Salu).(image)

Attractive cover design for the British edition from HarperCollins UK: Boring cover design for the North American edition from Nation Books: I also appreciate Nation Books changing the title to make it relevant to ME, Mr Joe Average North American. Nice touch…(image)

For their new edition (new translation?) of Walter Benjamin’s Einbahnstraße (One-way Street) in the Modern Classics series, Penguin UK — no doubt realising that it would be near impossible to come up with anything better (no publisher that I know of has been able to do so in 80 years that have ellapsed since the […](image)

This isn’t the first time I’ve highlighted the cover of an Arnon Grunberg novel. Very much looking forward to Tirza (published by Actes Sud), which came out in France last week and is due out in Canada on 11 November.(image)

In the face of any number of more or less unattractive cover designs for Robin Lane Fox’s The Classical World, Penguin have gone back to basics with special British (also available in Canada) and Australian editions featuring classic Penguin design.

Beowulf vs Hrolf Krakibelletristik97822530824399780140435931

Following on from a previous post about coincidental cover designs, here’s another one: Both LGF for their French translation of Beowulf and Penguin for their English translation of The Saga of Hrolf Kraki have gone with the same image to illustrate their respective covers. The coincidence is perhaps more readily understandable in this case, however, […](image)

This attractive paperback edition of George Lakoff’s The Political Mind is due out in May from Penguin USA, with simultaneous publication in Canada. Notice how the paperback edition has dropped the references to specifically American politics found in the text and illustration of last year’s hardback cover design: The paperback edition immediately captured my interest, […](image)
