Book Cover 2
ABOUT THE BOOK COVER A new cover for a favorite book, Dancer From the Dance, by Andrew Holleran (1978 Perennial/Harper Collins). It’s the story of a young man searching for love amid the emerging gay scene of mid-seventies New York, who ultimately dies of AIDS in the early eighties, sick, broke and alone in a St. Mark’s walk-up. The idea was to capture the sadness of his receding life and memories, as it all slips below the surface. Several damaged mirror balls were dismantled to create the title type package. The board fabric is in denim, as a nod to the gay “clone” (jeans, boots, mustache) look of the era. Cover in soft-touch laminate.
