Infinite Jest New Cover (GalleyCat)

Little, Brown and Company has unveiled the cover for the 20th anniversary edition of David Foster Wallace’s Infinite Jest. Last year, the publisher hosted a fan-designed cover contest.

According to the publisher’s tumblr post, Joe Walsh, a Cincinatti-based artist, created the winning submission. We’ve embedded the full image for the jacket design above—what do you think?

The judging committee included Karen Green, an artist and Wallace’s widow, and Michael Pietsch, CEO of Hachette Book Group and Wallace’s editor. Tom Bissell, a journalist, wrote the foreword for this book. The release date has been scheduled for Feb. 23. (via The Melville House Blog)
