Is this the cover to Murakami's 1Q84?

Well, isn't this interesting: some cover art to Murakami's hotly anticipated 1Q84 has appeared on Amazon! I'm sure all of this is subject to change, as we've got about half a year before the book will be released. But, it doesn't hurt to get excited:

Looks to me like two layers-- perhaps along the lines of the UK edition of Tom McCarthy's C., with a transparent jacket and artwork printed directly on the boards. Also-- check out that page count! The book's almost 1000 pages, which surely collects all three separate volumes of the novel. Very much looking forward to this one.

Pulse by Julian Barnes
