After watching a TED talk by Chip Kidd regarding book design, I thought I would spend a few minutes and update the cover for how the world ends. Amazon still hasn’t pushed the change through to the Kindle store yet, but the updated version is above. If you’ve read the book, I presume you’ll get it, but if you haven’t I hope it makes you wonder.
One of the things that I’ve striven towards in many aspects of what I do (not limited to writing, but that’s the big one) is not so much amazing, stunning, wonderful, or even great. What on earth do those things even mean, anyways, when everyone talks about them so much? I don’t think I can take much more amazing.
Surely the beauty of our world is something more subtle than that.
Surely the blood that runs through our veins is driven by a force more powerful than words, and thus we should not use words to describe it.
Hence the new cover.
