The Novel Idea: Hassan Rahim

Konx-Om-Pax

For our new series, “The Novel Idea,” we are asking artists to re-create the covers of their favorite books. Last time, Brian Scott Campbell selected A Figure In Hiding, and this time Hassan Rahim selected Konx om Pax: Essays in Light byAleister Crowley.I chose this book because upon researching Aleister Crowley novels, I was immediately drawn to the bold typographic cover,” Hassan explains. “I later discovered that the insane font treatment was actually designed by Crowley himself after smoking hashish, despite looking like a professional typographer’s hand. I think that small detail attracted me more to his work altogether.”
