From Galleycat comes literary trendspotter Ron Hogan‘s musings on the rise of doodle-laden book covers. He points to the casually sketched or scribbled covers (larger photo here) of Joe Dunthorne‘s Submarine, Megan Hustad‘s How To Be Useful, and Rivka Galchen‘s Atmospheric Disturbances, which we think feels positively Rauschenbergian, although that observation could very well be a manifestation of our mourning of the artist, who passed away earlier this week and whose 1969 work “Red Body” sold last night at Sotheby’s for $993,000 (including buyer’s premium), well above the high estimate of $700,000. Meanwhile, a doodly Dubuffet work made in 1975-76 soared over its high estimate of $2 million to sell for $3.6 million, including buyer’s premium, while Jeff Koons‘ polychromed aluminum doodlebug (“Caterpillar Chains“) sold for just under $6 million.
