This book is a compilation of interviews and stories about Thompson, compiled and woven together into narrative form.

I was working in the Rolling Stone art department at the time. The current cover of the book was not working, so Jan Wenner asked if I would redesign it. The photo was already chosen, and was tricky to work with. I was not allowed to crop it or obscure it with type.
