The Death of Bunny Munro is Nick Cave's second novel, best known as the lead singer of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. His first novel, And the Ass Saw the Angel, was published in 1989.
The novel deals with Bunny Munro, a middle aged lothario whose constant womanising and alcohol abuse comes to a head after the suicide of his wife. A travelling door to door beauty product salesman, he and his son go on an increasingly out of control road trip around Brighton, over which looms the shadow of a serial killer making his way towards Brighton, as well as Bunny's own mortality. The novel is set in Brighton in 2003.
For the cover design we had to convey the tumultuous emotions in the head of Bunny Munro which we did through various photo-montages based on our own photographs. These images try to convey salient aspects of his life such as the womanizing he was know to have become. There is a sense of darkness as well which we tried to convey through the cover.
