Photos of Crichton’s Jasper Johns covers

Michael Crichton’s official website has recently added photos of the front and back covers of both the 1977 edition and the 1994 edition of Crichton’s book on Jasper Johns.

The 1977 edition cover is actually one big painting that wraps around the spine of the book and extends to the back cover. The information on inside of the dust cover lists the painting as UNTITLED (1977), but at a 2007 exhibit at the National Gallery of Art, the painting’s title is given as Savarin (1977)

The 1994 edition’s front cover shows Johns’ Summer (1985), and the painting on the back cover is Untitled (1991)
