The wondrous New York Times Bestseller, Einstein’s Dreams, is a fictional novel
by Alan Lightman detailing thirty of Einstein’s dreams. Each dream is a different
concept of time that supposedly helped Einstein create the Theory of Relativity.
Halftone dots were used to convey unease and unrest throughout the book and
red end pages to signify a living body and contrast with a black and white reality.
Images were distorted and morphed to show the multitude of variations of time
and different playing fields of time. The cover of the book was meant to display
time in a holistic sense. The front features Einstein’s many headspaces, and the
back a grandfather clock to symbolize Father Time.
