John Gall, The Design Bureau

“The re-working, dealing with all the feedback (some warranted, some moronic) ‘make this bigger’, ‘make this smaller’, ‘my psychic thinks it should be blue’—that is what separates the men from the boys,”

Nice interview with a man at the top of his game. Most of it is related to the Nabokov series. If I were a famous book cover designer, I think I’d just flat out refuse to answer any questions related to e-books at this point. Nothing wrong with the topic, of course, but it must get intensely tiresome.

And for what it’s worth, having stopped by his office on a handful of occasions, I can attest to the fact that he really does dress this well.
