Listen carefully

The Rest is Noise: Listening to the Twentieth Century by Alex Ross.
Design by Charlotte Strick.

Although it's hard to keep clean, the uncoated stock on this jacket really warms up what might have otherwise turned out to be an overly slick and cold package for this survey of classical music in the 20th century (it's much better in person; the cover has a great tactile quality). In an odd way it matches Ross's engaging writing style. It reminds me of something (in a good way) but I can't quite put my finger on it (a series of album covers from back in the day perhaps?).
