Faber and Faber

Faber and Faber have produced this cover design for the hardback release of Adrian Tomine’s UK debut title Shortcomings, the story of theatre manager Ben Tanaka and the struggles he faces when his girlfriend moves to New York. The artwork was designed by Tomine himself and the small, thick hardback format is intended to contrast with the graphic novel-style content. The book is published on 13 September.
