Eva Brandstotter - The Leopard

I love the book cover top. It's letterpressed! I thought it would be interesting to show the equally well designed cover to the Criterion Collection DVD of the Visconti movie. The movie is incidentally long and puzzling, but it stars Burt Lancaster, Alain Delon, and Claudia Cardinale, all in dub mode. The story is basically about an aristocratic Italian family in the last days of the Italian aristocracy, as it falls away under the wheels of democracy. Or socialism. Or something.
