Eyestruck.

While browsing the shelves of Photoplay today, my eyes were awestruck by the cover for the Criterion edition of Whit Stillman’s The Last Days of Disco. The gorgeous illustration is by Pierre Le-Tan. I’m not sure how he pulls off that insane cross-hatching look – is it the texture of the paper or is it all done by hand? Whatever his secret weapon is, the two women in their muted colors appear almost as thought they are behind a veil and the illustration looks like it might dissolve into thin air. Scroll down to view the Criterion cover – my only complaint there is the use of the gaudy font Bernhard Modern.
