Gray318 and Keenan: The Lonely Polygamist and Die Radleys

Two wonderful covers shown on Wednesday's AIGA Small Talks starring Jonathan Gray and Jamie Keenan. The Lonely Polygamist is about a polygamist Mormon with four wives and 28 children who becomes increasingly isolated from his massive family. Die Radleys is the German edition of a novel about a family of vampires, published in the UK as The Radleys, and coming to the US in December.

Patrick Barry: Strip

Very fun cover that looks great in the store - printed on what appears to be metallic paper, since the wave pattern is all foil and remains foil from front to back. I like how the waves make the man look like he's flying around in mid air hanging on to dear life. The story takes place in LA, where a young couple robs a badass mobster strip-club owner, who exacts his revenge on the wrong man, leading the couple to try to rob him again, all while a bigamous police lieutenant takes charge of the increasingly violent case. New from Houghton Mifflin.
