Back to the Good Stuff

Sorry about the gap between posts: obviously being featured on The Guardian's website (oddly, under a photo of Robocop) has made me too self-satisfied to post. But after that last post''s cavalcade of shit, how about some good stuff?

These covers are the work of Bulgarian designer Raycho Stanev for the local translations of a number of well-known books, each using strong, bold illustrations and vivid blocks of colour. I've included the English titles/authors below each image. Click for much bigger versions.

Cockroach by Rawi Hage

The White Tiger by Aravind Adiga

Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides

The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides

Let the Great World Spin by Colum McCann

The Reluctant Fundamentalist by Mohsin Hamid

Behind Doors: Cuban stories

My Street by Diana Ivanova and Babak Salari

Solo by Rana Dasgupta
Raycho has also designed this poster for 'Recover', a documentary movie about book covers, directed by Evgeni Bogdanov.
