How do you clothe a book? In this deeply personal reflection, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jhumpa Lahiri explores the art of the book jacket from the perspectives of both reader and writer. Probing the complex relationships between text and image, author and designer, and art and commerce, Lahiri delves into the role of the uniform; explains what book jackets and design have come to mean to her; and how, sometimes, "the covers become a part of me."… (més)

Surprisingly facile, with an argument that is neither developed nor consistent, and which relies on an almost wilful ignorance of the history of the book, past and present. (To give one brief example: Lahiri claims that Americans’ championing of individualism blocks any attempt of homogeneity in the covers of books produced in the U.S. Yet more romance novels are sold in the U.S. every year than any other genre, and the most cursory glance at the covers of the myriad Harlequin series would neatly disprove Lahiri’s point.)

Zeer korte uiteenzetting over het thema: de kaften van boeken, en wat ze betekenen voor het boek, de schrijver, de verkoper en de lezer. Dit is de weergave van een lezing die Lahiri heeft gegeven. Vandaar de zeer beperkte omvang, en het gebrek aan diepgang. Ze snijdt echter wel een paar interessante thema's aan, vond ik, als boekenliefhebber. Thema's die mij ook aan het denken zetten. ( )

The Clothing of Books was a lovely short piece about book cover design, from the writer’s perspective. It’s a really short and quick read, great for any book lover.

“We don’t live in a world in which a cover can simply reflect the sense and style of the book. Today more than ever the cover shoulders an additional weight. Its function is much more commercial than aesthetic. It succeeds or fails in the market.” ( )

The Clothing of Books was originally presented as a lecture that ends up being a personal essay. So, this is a nice little volume that is a thoughtful look by Jhumpa Lahiri on the topic of book covers.

"I did not own many books as a girl. I would go to the library, where books were often undressed: without jackets or any images."

Also about these library books:

"They had an anonymous quality, secretive. They gave nothing away in advance. To understand them, you had to read them." ( )

On a trip to the bookstore to finish up some Christmas shopping, I found this book and a book on publishing in a tiny stack on a featured table, clearly abandoned there. Given how much time I'd spent obsessing over starting my own micro press recently, it felt like fate, so I immediately picked them up to buy them.

This book is adapted from a speech that Lahiri gave in Italy at a festival. It mostly ends up very personal -- about how she feels about the covers of her books, but there were some interesting thoughts here. Particularly what it means for a book to be part of an edited series, and how the covers of such a series communicate that. As an micro press is, essentially, a series, I appreciated her thoughts here.

I do think that I should read more on book design, from the designer's or the publisher's perspective. I'm glad I found this one to start me on my way. ( )
