A Super Special Halloween Treat, 'Cause I Like You All So Much

Some wonderful work from Canongate U.S. The first three are of a series on Myth.

Pass. Pass. Pass. Pass. Pass.

I play like Dionne Warwick and "walk on by" these books at B&N.

I love your website, and I like this round of book covers because the designers are taking risks and trying something new.

I agree, Susan. I really like the Winterson and Atwood titles. And if I remember correctly, both are even better when viewed in person, as the design is continued on the back.

The myth series are excellent given their content and The Flood is a genuine asskicker in my book (many years ago I recall discussing a very similar composition involving water with a friend, but as far as I know it came to nothing).

I have no idea about the Twins book is about, so it's hard to say fairly whether it's considered or just too subtle as a design goes.

Personally I observe Halloween by eating candy but this is nice also - thanks again
