The Kindness of Women
by J. G. Ballard // Picador
The latest addition in the J.G. Ballard redesigned series for Picador. A semi-autobiographical sequel to Empire of the Sun.
I finally heard from Ballard's agent that he liked this cover. He actually said he liked it. Nice. This is high praise since he wasn't fond of any of my other redesigns for him. Or for that matter, any of his covers ever published anywhere.
And thanks to The Book Design Review Blog for the kindness of their words in highlighting this cover and the Picador list.
J. G Ballard dies age 78 // April 18, 2009.
