Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency

A speculative book cover design I was working on last week. I first became aware of the book having watched the excellent TV series (which borrows very little from the books as a matter of fact) and saw that there doesn’t seem to have been a new cover design since the 80s. I was in need of another book cover to even out my portfolio, so what a great opportunity! In remaining faithful to the book, there’s no Stephan Mangan or Darren Boyd though, I’m afraid!

*Potentially unpopular opinion* I didn’t like the book; I just can’t get on with Douglas Adams’s work unfortunately.. It was a fun cover to work on nonetheless!
