The weight of the word

All the Sad Young Literary Men by Keith Gessen.
Design by The Heads of State.

Nice illustration of the weight of the past on new literary aspirations. The book is nicely produced on uncoated stock, with a matte finish on the book. It really makes the black suck you in. The angle of the book is nicely mimicked with the type on the back cover, and a bit of the back cover encroaches onto the spine at the same angle. A really nicely considered package.
