Michel Vrana on Designing the Cover for Guy
"Reading the manuscript, I was struck by just how empty Guy seemed, and that’s what I wanted to evoke on the cover: an empty suit…the term ‘stuffed shirt’ also came to mind. A simple suit on a hanger wouldn’t work, though: there needed to be an indication of something ‘missing'. By removing the head, and more importantly the face, from the figure, Guy’s humanity has been replaced by his name. A name that’s synonymous with the generic. He’s no longer a man, he’s a symbol."
