Via designer Peter Mendelsund comes this design for the cover of the next book from the wonderfully unclassifiably Tom McCarthy. (Satin Island is due out in early 2015.) Given that McCarthy’s work has involved the deconstructed narratives of C. and Remainder, and the most mind-expanding look at Tintin you’re likely to read, I think it’s safe to say that we’re excited about this one.
The use of strikethrough here does a fine job of suggesting what it is and isn’t: a novel, sure, but with elements of other forms as well. Color us excited.
