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 on 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, and the context is obvious.

Published by Gyldendal, 2016. Edited by Janne Breinholt Bak.
