THE bold typographic covers you see are the work of Dutch graphic designer Jan Vermeulen. He and novelist Jan Wolkers were a team. Wolkers wrote the books, Vermeulen designed the covers. It is nice to see that Vermeulen paid the back of the novel the same attention as the front.

The most famous one he designed is for the book ‘Turks Fruit’.  It was published in 1969 and caused some controversy in Holland because it contained explicit sex scenes. Needless to say is was a huge success. ‘De Walgvogel’ is from the year 1974,  ‘De Kus’ from 1977 and ‘De Hond met de Blauwe Tong’ is from 1964.

Check out some other Jan Vermeulen covers.
