Rumpus Exclusive: New Cover Art From McSweeney’s


The Rumpus Book Club’s October pick, The Instructions, by Adam Levin, is not only going to be an amazing read (we’ve heard really good things), but it’s beautiful too. (It’s also 1,024 pages).

Take a look:

We have it on good authority that there will be a gray cover as well. Credit where credit is due: the art is by Rachell SumpterJacob Magraw-Mickelson.

Folks, we are super excited about this book.

Also, this is a good deal, cover price is $28 but the book club is $25 and includes shipping. Join The Rumpus Book Club today!
