Bait and Switch

Holy bejesus that is some awful kerning on the title. I thought it was perhaps the scan, but here's a photo of the cover. Yikes.

I'm getting seasick looking at it.

Wow. I'm wondering if someone told the AD "okay, now make the title REALLY BIG."

Nasty and the all centered design, yuck. I imagine the author asked for big type so the book stands out more. It seems to be a common misconception by people that bigger type will attract the eyes.
