The original cover for CALL ME BY YOUR NAME has always bothered me. (See far below)

The layout is fine – it’s just that the image of the shaved head reads very 90s to me and the book takes place in the early 80s.

That called for a design exercise! Doing image research (the archive of my Tumblr, d’uh), I came across a painting by Andrew Wyeth

and changed some things in photoshop to represent the Italian coast where the book takes place.
