Every Book Cover Tells a Story


A cover competes for attention and informs the consumer about the tone, flavour, promise and quality of its content with it's visual message, just like any other product on the shelf. Oh, and it should also have the title and the author's name... and it may be better off without this particular author's name... :o)

  1. Nah.... the author's name is what makes it! :)

  2. I would certainly pull this book from the shelf for a look, expecting to smile. (I actually looked on the Chapters site for it.) There is a strong aesthetic to the cover, I think it speaks very strongly to those with a wry (perhaps quirky) sense of humour and view of the world.
