Cover art for Judith Butler's Undoing Gender

Works on Paperink and acrylic on paper, modified book

John supplied a work on paper for the cover of Judith Butler's 2003 book, Undoing Gender.  The title of this work: Blanchot, page 18 of 46.

The designer isolated the central figure and floated it against white.  The final design more or less matches this draft version: the open boxes are pushed farther from the center so they don't cross the crease and into the spine.
