European countries continue to impress with their approach to designing Chuck Palahniuk covers. Rather than taking a literal approach to the work, they tend towards the abstract. Their covers are more like modern pop culture art than spoon-fed designs. A few years ago I celebrated the Czech Republic's covers for their boldness...
Now Serbia deserves a place on that mantle. Check out their new cover for Rant, as well as their cover for Invisible Monsters:

PRE-ORDER IS NOW CLOSED. IF YOU WANT TO BE PUT ON A WAITING LIST FOR ANY OVERAGE, EMAIL ORDERS@ CHUCKPALAHNIUK. NET.
The design is by Kevin Tong. It features Buster Casey traveling through time mid-car crash. The shirt color is Black. It's a Unisex American Apparel Tri-blend shirt. The fabric is very soft, very light and extremely comfortable.
PRE-ORDER IS NOW CLOSED!
Important Sizing Info
This is a unisex shirt, so women may prefer to order one size smaller. See a size chart here.
Print / Design Info
The inks on this shirt are water based, which means you won't feel like you're wearing a giant decal on your chest. This also means that the design will 'heather' slightly, giving the shirt a slightly muted, vintage look.
Check out a high-rez close-up of the design.
*This pre-order closes on May 31st. Order before then to guarantee yourself a shirt. We will only be printing a limited quantity. Shirts will be sent to the printer on June 5th and turned around shortly thereafter. We expect to begin shipping out all orders starting on June 19.

Some pretty cool artwork today from 'Hanna.' First one is Invisible Monsters. The other is from Rant. Click each one below to see a larger version and to rate it.
Late last year we decided it was high time to begin thinking about our next Tshirt. So rather than just arbitrarily picking a book of Chuck's that hadn't been featured yet, we decided to turn the mic over to you, the fans. And so we set up a poll via Twitter and allowed people to vote on which book they'd like to see a Tshirt designed for next. And lucky for me (because it's my favorite Palahniuk book!)Rant
won! So you asked for it, you got it!
Order Your Rant Shirt!
For all you patient kiddies, today is the day you can order your own 'Rant' poster, designed by Kevin Tong. This is the image used on the shirt Kevin also designed us, and really, it's a work of art. This is getting framed and going on my wall. Check out the above video of Kevin designing the image for the Tshirt and poster.
These posters are limited edition. Only 200 have been printed. Once they're gone... they're gone. They cost $30 and you can order them here.
Poster specs: It’s a 18 X 24 inch, four color, screen printed poster on 80 lb. Wausau Astrobright Cover Paper in an edition of 200, signed and numbered
Kevin Tong previously created posters for two other Tshirts he designed us: Fight Club and Invisible Monsters. The guy is really a genius. If you live anywhere in the California area, you have to visit one of his shows to see his other prints.

I was contacted this week by a film industry friend and producer who has just optioned the rights to the movie version of 'Rant'. He kindly asked me to keep this nondescript for now, but I can say that 'Rant' is officially optioned now and is in the early stages of development. We'll keep you informed as they progress onward.
For now, take this time to discuss. Would 'Rant' make a good movie? How would you like to see it done?
