This is the cover of Jay-Z's new book Decoded.  The ink blot symbolizes himself (or as he sees himself) as an ambiguous entity, impossible to define, and interpreted uniquely by each individual.  I don't know if I buy all that about him personally, but I really like the concept and am interested to take a look at the book just because of that.  I really like the chosen colors on the cover.  It's more subtle and organic than what I would assume Jay-Z would want on the shelf.  Good work Hova!


  1. Did you see Jay-Z's interview on the Daily Show?

  2. I like the concept as well ... I haven't taken a look at the book yet, but I definitely want to check it out just because of the book design.
