Zen og kunsten at vedligeholde en motorcykel – Book cover, Gyldendal

Robert M. Pirsig’s classic Zen og kunsten at vedligeholde en motorcykel (yes: Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance) has been reissued by Gyldendal after years of being unavailable in Danish.

We’ve made a cover based on the beauty of technical drawings, and the incredible complexity of a motorcycle – a key metaphor of the book. On both front and back are exploded engine drawings from Honda maintenance manuals from the period (though the brand is never mentioned in the book, Robert M. Pirsig supposedly rode a Honda CB77 at the time). All drawings are printed in a very light grey covered with spot glossy UV varnish.

Published by Gyldendal, 2015. Edited by: Stinne Lender. Technical drawings used with kind permission from Honda Denmark.
