I try to read every book while I design the cover. With this book, I was so in love, that I made a cover for each chapter I read. And while the editor appreciated my enthusiasm, I think the author Owen Egerton appreciated it more. Or at least he pretended to, when he responded to my fan mail when the design process was over.
Owen Egerton's The Book of Harold is as profound and deeply respectful a novel as it is irreverent in its wild, often hilarious take on a modern messianic movement in suburbia.
