Larry Geiger’s cover design for “Elephant” is classic, retro and even a bit peculiar. His design showing an elephant lamp being toppled, with the shade and the pull string slightly off kilter, conveys the domestic turmoil reflected in the collected stories. The cover is pictured to the right as a link to the book on Amazon.
After the cover of the book was recently released, I started to receive pictures of “domesticated” elephants! We all know elephant lamps are awesome. Do you have an elephant lamp or other “domesticated” elephant? Send me a picture and I’ll place it on this page!
Here’s Michael Dolan’s “domesticated elephant.” (pictured above) Michael wrote, “It was “liberated” when I was a young church sacristan from a church basement – part of a huge wooden nativity set no longer
in use. I thought it a shame to be collecting dust, so it became my joke pollyanna gift that year. Stuck with my brother for years until he moved and gave the elephant back.”
