Gorgeous. I love Gray318 and Jonathan Coe so much.
Dun dun dun! We’re delighted to exclusively reveal the jacket design for Jonathan Coe’s fantastic new novel, Expo 58, coming from Viking in September 2013. Inspired by the vintage posters from the world expo in Brussels in 1958 (for which the curious Atomium was built), designer Jon Gray has created an incredibly stylish jacket. The first 5 to reblog will win proof copies of the novel.
Expo 58 stirs elements of Ealing comedy, Hitchcockian thriller and political farce into an incisive, affecting portrait of Britain as it stands at a postwar crossroads, faced with crucial choices between America and Europe, the future and the past.
