Helen Yentus: The Implacable Order of Things
Fascinating cover to a fantastical tale of a poor Portuguese town where the devil walks among the townsfolk and the characters include a pair of twins joined at the pinky. Trying to figure out the meaning of the cover may be difficult without reading the book, but I did come across this passage from Publisher's Weekly that might help: "Peixoto aims to manifest a subtle connection between the townspeople, a kind of superconsciousness". Maybe that explains the string. In any case, this is gorgeous. I wonder who designed it...

Fantastic! I love the tension created by the string.
