Bowie Book Club #2: The Day of the Locust

I wondered how far into my this project I'd get before I found an excuse to do a sideways cover and … well here we are, number two, Nathanael West's The Day of the Locust. It just works better for this idea, aimed somewhere in the middle ground between hand-painted 1930s title cards (thank you Art of the Title for inspiration) and Ed Ruscha. I think. I'll probably change my mind by teatime.

Interesting to see a Ballard quote on the cover – if there was one author I could've sworn would be on Bowie's list, it was Ballard. But he's a no-show. Odd.
