  1. That book cover always drove me nuts when I worked in a bookstore because the titles not on it! Whenever it was faced out on the shelf, you couldnt see the title.

  2. Stephanie /

    Did customers ever ask for that book with the guy and the punctuation? :)

    I think theres a version that does have the title on it, but the compositions not as striking as this one.

    (My pet hate when it comes to cover design is dark-coloured foiling on a black background. Impossible to read. Also novels that say something like Title: a novel).
