I recently illustrated a quote for Goodreads,as part of their monthly YA newsletter (sent out today- also contained an interview with the amazing Rainbow Rowell ). I was excited to work with them… because I love books, and Goodreads, and especially YA. And then they gave me the quote and said do something with books and food. Well. Heaven.
I may have to go back to some parts of the unused sketches, I enjoyed doing them so much.

Book borrowing is the biggest form of true love it’s like, “Here’s a piece of my soul that I think you would enjoy.”
Murakami’s new backlist design uses the circle as a central motif and the palette is limited to red, black and off-white. This creates a strong and consistent identity for the set.
Murakami’s work has a sense that something has been lost or hidden, what is real and what is not. To match this playfulness for the covers, we commissioned Noma Bar, a talented Israeli-born and London-based illustrator. His powerful graphic illustrations cleverly utilise negative space concealing secondary images and illusions. Noma’s illustrations were screenprinted by hand to give them a personal and softer edge.
Noma Bar is represented by Dutch Uncle and can be found here.
