La Planète Des Singes

La Planète Des Singes by Pierre Boulle, translated into English as Monkey Planet, and Planet Of The Apes in the USA. I found this fantastic photo by renowned wildlife photographer Tim Flach, and I liked the way your mind doesn't immediately register exactly what it is.
The back cover blurb is partly copied from the back of the 2011 Vintage paperback edition (UK), improved and niced up by moi, and the whole design itself is inspired by the current Penguin Classics paperback series (specifically Autobiography by Morrissey).

(With its alternative title)

The photographer: this is another shot of the chimpanzee Jambo, by Tim Flach. You can see a lot more of his work here.
