Cover Design

Richard Brautigan is one of the great American short story writers of the twentieth century. This selection of his stories is translated into Icelandic by Þórður Sævar Jónsson. The title (Revenge of the Lawn) is borrowed from a story in which a man sets fire to a tree. The open matchbox is a nod towards this totemic image. On the back cover, the same matchbox is full of spent matches. The design adapts a photograph by Noel Shiveley.
