The Face of Another by Kobo Abe

Above: Alternate cover

Above: Initial version

A cover I did of a book I'm currently reading by a Mr. Kobo Abe! A stunning piece of writing about a man who loses his face and subsequently his identity, and his mind, sort of. Highly recommended, although if you don't fancy reading a wordy exercise in existentialism, perhaps watch the film of the same title, starring Tatsuya Nakadai!
