Reportage from Rwanda

We wish to inform you that tomorrow we will be killed with our families: Stories from Rwanda by Philip Gourevitch.
Design by Anne Fink.
Photography by Philip Gourevitch.

This understated cover perfectly underscores the simple statement of the title. By eschewing a graphic representation of the genocide and choosing instead a photo of the beautiful Lake Kiva by the author, Anne Fink lets the horror of the title, and thereby the events, sink in slowly. I wish I had a better scan of this cover.
