Catalogue Note

Peter Capaldi is a BAFTA-award-winning British actor, writer and director. He is best known for being the twelfth and current actor – until December 2017 – to play Doctor Who in the BBC TV series, and for the role of Malcolm Tucker in the BBC comedy series The Thick of It.

“I chose to illustrate the cover of The Metamorphosis because I find the story so powerful, the imagery unforgettable, and the sadness at its heart completely human. It is rightfully considered one of the greatest stories of the twentieth century”
