Abstract:

When a reader picks up a book, the essence of the text has been translated 
into the visual space of the cover. Using Umberto Eco's bestseller "The 
Name of the Rose" as a case study, this is the first study of book cover 
design as a form of intersemiotic translation based on the purposeful 
selection of visual signs to represent verbal signs. As an act of translation, 
the cover of a book ought to be an 'equivalent representation' of the text. But 
in the absence of any established interpretive criteria, how can equivalence 
between the visual and the verbal be determined and interpreted? "Re-
Covered Rose" tackles this  question in an original and creative way, laying 
the foundation for a new research trend in Translation Studies.

Marco Sonzogni is Senior Lecturer in Italian, School of Languages and 
Cultures, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand. A widely published 
academic and an award-winning editor, poet and literary translator, he is the 
Director of the New Zealand Centre for Literary Translation/Te Tumu 
Whakawhiti Tuhinga.
