The jacket was designed by Glaser's studio for Roth's new book Nemesis, released in October. "The cover references both the stifling heat wave in Newark, New Jersey in the 1940s, and the protagonist's interest in javelin throwing," Glaser's website says.
Glaser is a personal friend of author Philip Roth. He designed covers for Exit Ghost (September 2007), Indignation (September 2008), and The Humbling (November 2009).
Eighteen of Glaser's original designs are available on t-shirts sold at 2K by Gingham. The store's interview with the artist is here.

The Templeton Foundation ad series is placed in magazines such as The New Yorker and The Atlantic. The theme of the current campaign is: 'Does moral action depend on reasoning?'
