Fodbold – Book cover, Gyldendal
Fodbold (Football) is a collection of essays on football by the Belgian writer Jean-Philippe Toussaint.
The cover is based on a simple idea: A close up of a football so tight that the ball becomes an almost abstract pentagonal pattern. When the cover is seen in its entirety (as shown below) much more of the ball is revealed, leaving no doubt about what it is, if there ever was any.
