The Look of the New Murakami. . .


Fall may seem a long time off, but not for sales reps (the catalogues and marketing plans are piled up on my desk as I write).  One of the books I'm most looking forward to reading is Haruki Murakami's latest novel 1Q84.  It's going to be a doorstop (over 900 pages) and it's going to look gorgeous. The book is designed by Chip Kidd who discusses the process here.  It'll be out in late October -can't wait!

Oooh, it is an intriguing cover. I must admit, the 904 pages is a bit daunting. Hopefully it will be amazing, and 904 pages won't feel like enough. :)
