Mishima SPRING SNOW book cover

Japanese author Yukio Mishima (三島由紀夫)’s classic Spring Snow (春の雪) reissued with new jacket design from Random House Vintage in 2013.

Yukio Mishima is one of my favorite writers of all time, and designer John Gall is one of my design heroes, so to illustrate this book  for me was a match made in heaven.

art direction and design: John Gall
