Detective Story by Imre Kertész.
Design by John Gall.
Photography by Oote Boe.

A beautifully subtle cover for this novel in which the protagonist is a torturer for the secret police of a recently defunct dictatorship. The reader is invited to collude with the designer in reading the title of the book, subverting the law in order to peer through an envelope at the contents inside. The matte finish on the cover invites you to hold it in your hands.
