John Gray book covers
I designed the original covers for all of John Gray’s books. When HarperCollins published his first and most famous book, Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus, they had no idea how big his name would become. The Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus design was included in the book Type Rules by Ilene Strizver.
“In 1992, Gray published his book, Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus which has sold more than seven million copies and according to a 1997 report by the book’s publisher, HarperCollins, is the all time, best-selling hard-cover nonfiction book. The book became a “popular paradigm” for problems in relationships based on the different tendencies in each gender and led to infomercials, audiotapes and videotapes, a CD-ROM (the first from HarperReference), weekend seminars, theme vacations, a one-man Broadway show, an TV sitcom plus a movie contract with 20th Century Fox. The book has been published in 40 languages and has earned Gray almost $18 million.” — Wikipedia
