More great covers and Peter’s thoughts on the redesign.

Damn, those are pretty. “F. Kafka” is a nice touch.
From the comments: “It looks like the fine people at Pantheon/Schocken are going to make some posters, and maybe some other things as well- we’ll see.”
Reading that blog is going to ruin me financially.
These are stunning and complement the work beautifully.
I hope Schocken is sticking with the old Muir translations which, for all their imperfections, are still the most readable.
I’d like to buy some posters of these covers. Are they for sale?
The eyeballs work pretty well; the Metamorphosis gag is great (could have been the draw to this blogicle) and I especially like the Diaries keyholes. But –
– whoa. Schocken was publishing Kafka in Hebrew in Palestine while his family was being liquidated?
