Book by Ned Beauman. Cover design by La Boca, London.
The Teleportation Accident by Ned Beauman must have been a strange challenge to cover: a time travel story spanning the first half of the 20th century; heavily comedic, but with the respectability of an acclaimed young author and a Man Booker Prize nomination.
The very talented designers at La Boca clearly had a lot of fun with this jacket art. With art deco inspired design that serves as both a loving tribute and a comic pastiche of the art deco era, the result is so vivid and striking you can’t help but want to read it.
“It seemed to be a good solution to visualise the concept of teleportation,” Bendall says, adding, “I think that every successful cover should create intrigue and excitement for what lies ahead.” – Scott Bendell of La Boca, to Creative Bloq
