UPDATE: Raymond Hawkey died aged 80 on 30 August 2010. Read the obituaries at The Guardian and The Telegraph.
Len Deighton’s novels Berlin Game, Set and Match feature striking cover art; I remember being thrilled and slightly afraid of them when I first found them on my father’s bookshelves. They were designed by a colleague of Deighton’s from London’s Royal College of Art, Raymond Hawkey. His style is distinctive and influential: photographic elements, strong, blocky typefaces, simple and clean layouts.
