COLORLESS TSUKURU TAZAKI AND HIS YEARS OF PILGRIMAGE              Haruki Murakami

This was one of those rare covers where the initial idea seemed so right. The pieces fell into place and it was as if it was just meant to be. Stage one of the cover reveals an elegant abstract design, representing the five main characters and close childhood friends Mr Red, Mr Blue, Miss White, Miss Black and Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki. Tsukuru means to make or build, and this is an integral part of the second stage of our cover to be revealed at a later date.

Haruki Murakami’s new novel will be published in the UK this August. 

Can’t wait for the new Murakami novel!

Women often have a great need to portray themselves as sympathetic and pleasing, but we’re also dark people with dark thoughts. I wanted to have that on the page, as horrible as it might seem.

All over my bed
Love these book covers of David Mitchell’s books
Alice, the Little Prince, and Dorothy and company
Once you pass a certain age, life is just a continuous process of losing one thing after another. One after another, things you value slip out of your hands the way a comb loses teeth. People you love fade away one after another.
Haruki Murakami (1Q84)
