Every year, designer John Gall asks his first-year students to design a book cover for their all-time favorite book. Unsurprisingly, Chuck Klosterman’s Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs — which the Onion AV Club calls, correctly, “one of the brightest pieces of pop analysis to appear this century” — is the most popular book among the students.

On a related note, here’s a New Yorker interview with the guy who actually designs Klosterman’s iconic book covers.
