The 351 Books of Irma Arcuri. "'Do designers read the books?' Yes, especially fiction. But as we’re always reading so many books at one time, often we only have the time to read enough till a few solid ideas form for visual exploration, and then we have to move onto reading something else we must also solve, and so it goes. But the solution for this book eluded me and I was falling behind on all my other covers. It wasn't until I read it to the very last bit, when I finally hit a eureka moment—a description of an antique book riddled with worm holes. As this was a love story wrapped in a mystery wrapped in the world of antiquarian books, the needed bits visually formed in my brain. But how to execute it? An hour later I sketched out the idea and sent it off to the always brilliant Fredrik Broden, who knew right away exactly what to do and how to do it."
