Published by Gyldendal in 1972, Hare, hvorhen? (“Rabbit, where to?”) is the Norwegian edition of John Updike’s 1971 novel Rabbit Redux. It’s the follow-up to Rabbit, Run (1960), known in Norwegian as Hare, hopp!

The cover design by Peter Haars brings together two display faces from 1969 which both carry first names starting with M: while the multiline Michel is named after its designer, Michel Waxmann, the inflated Marianna by Joseph Churchward got its name from one of the designer’s daughters. The author’s name is in ITC Pioneer.
