Mary Schuck: The Bell Jar
I absolutely love this cover. I have a thing for geometrical shapes paired with photos, the way Paul Rand, Saul Bass and the other designers of that time did things. Since this book takes place in the 50s, this design convention is perfect, and the broken collection of shapes and colors may also signify the author/protagonist's deteriorating sanity. And.....it's letterpressed!
