While the contents of a philosophy-packed biography of Karl Marx is almost certain to send my head spinning, the clean lines of its book cover are enough to set it back on straight:
Karl Marx: Greatness and Illusion comes out this September from Belknap Press, condensing the life and oeuvre of one of the world’s most influential intellectuals into 720 pages of history and thought. The simplicity of the book jacket’s design is a great pairing for the whirlwind of information within, balanced and bold. Just don’t stare at it too long — it’ll make you dizzy.
