Haruki Murakami Book Covers by Noma BarJuxtapoz // Thursday, 04 Oct 2012
Book publisher Vintage has teamed up illustrator Noma Bar with the now classic novels of Japan's most famed writer, Haruki Murakami, to create a brilliant series of new book cover designs.
Creative Review notes that Random House creative director Suzanne Dean says of the new series, "Murakami's work has a sense that something has been lost or hidden, what is real and what is not," she says. "To match this playfulness for the covers, we commissioned Noma Bar [whose] powerful graphic illustrations cleverly utilise negative space concealing secondary images and illusions. Noma's illustrations were screenprinted by hand to give them a personal and softer edge."
