The American Cover of Tsukuru Tazaki
The cover of the American edition of Tsukuru Tazaki was released by Random Hourse and appeared on amazon.com. It seems that the designer (his or her name is not listed) has taken the color theme rather literally. The four color strips seem to represent Tsukuru's four friends: Aka, Shiro, Kuro and Ao. There is also a rectangular element, which seems to have been cut out from a map of Tokyo area train network -- no doubt a bow towards Tsukuru's interest in trains and train stations.
