Catcher Art

Salon ran a slide show of the succession of book jackets that have covered the brilliance that is “Catcher in the Rye.” i love the abstractness of the Italian edition but my all time favorite jacket is the one i own (photo shown below).

i can’t help but think that Mr. Salinger would approve of my dog-eared copy. In fact, he probably would have thought, “yeah, that’s about right.”

  1. I also had the same print like yours, but it is long gone …. So sad…
