Vintage Yates Covers

Richard Yates wrote from the viewpoint of the post-war, pre-Baby-Boomer set, set upon by the modern world while dealing with their own fractured lives, and what could be more fitting than covers done in the style of those tempting and beautiful "modern world" advertisements and images that identify with the world Yates' characters struggled against? Despite the very retro style of the graphics, the design is ultimately modern, reducing the focus of the original design, setting the image off-center of what is really going on and surrounding with a lot of empty space, symbolizing Yates moreso.
