First look at Darwyn Cooke’s cover for The Getaway Car


NB: A version of this post also appears at Existential Ennui.

Here’s a nice exclusive—well, semi-exclusive; I’m cross-posting it at Existential Ennui—for you: Darwyn Cooke‘s handsome cover design for The Getaway Car, the Donald E. Westlake non-fiction anthology put together by Levi Stahl of The University of Chicago Press and due to be published by UCP in September. Levi himself broke the news about Darwyn illustrating and designing the book’s cover on his own blog earlier this month, but this is the first time said cover has been seen online (thank you to Levi for allowing me the opportunity to unveil it here and at Existential Ennui). It’s also, I believe, the first time that Darwyn’s work has adorned a Westlake project outside of the Richard Stark/Parker sphere—but not, I fervently hope, the last. Head to the UCP website for more about the book.
