Book Cover Design on Tumblr

"I think it’s really important to be critical of your own work and be able to accept its faults. Always, strive for more and be hungry. At the same time, embrace your mistakes, learn from them and move on to the next project. I am a big fan of tweaking and fixing til the end of days… but sometimes you just have to learn to let go of projects and keep going."

From my interview with talented Venezuelan book designer Isabel Urbina Peña

Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage - Design by Suzanne Dean

vintagebooksdesign:

COLORLESS TSUKURU TAZAKI AND HIS YEARS OF PILGRIMAGE              Haruki Murakami

This was one of those rare covers where the initial idea seemed so right. The pieces fell into place and it was as if it was just meant to be. Stage one of the cover reveals an elegant abstract design, representing the five main characters and close childhood friends Mr Red, Mr Blue, Miss White, Miss Black and Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki. Tsukuru means to make or build, and this is an integral part of the second stage of our cover to be revealed at a later date.

Haruki Murakami’s new novel will be published in the UK this August.
