A cover that explores the philosophy of ultraviolence practised by the protagonist, Alex. The illustration juxtaposes the mental state and idealism of Alex, which revolve around rape, crime and violence.
The figure and ground rendition enhances the idea that everything is imbibed in him, from which he cannot escape; from drugs to his visit to Korova milk bar - both subtly referenced, forming the silhouette of his face. Much like the many-layers of one’s character, the cover explores the unfolding of this notion, revealing the protagonist to the audience.
