The Bill From My Father

I've got $5 that says you will either love this or hate this.

So which one is it?

I like that it was physically made rather than comped together from a stock photo in InDesign. I think it's very distinctive and not compromised in any way. I guess that means I'm in the "love it" camp.

I love it as an image; it's very striking. I'm not as sure that I'd love it as a cover, but I suspect that it's eye-catching enough in its reverse-psychology white-space way to work from across a bookstore.

Yes, you rarely see a book cover with so much white space. That's one of the reasons I like it.

I love it. It's so clean. It looks like it knows exactly what it is, and that would make me pick it right up off the shelf.

I love it because it doesn't look like a cover. I did a triple take, so its primary task (for me, at least) was accomplished.

It's great, Good concept, a bill in an envelope with a window, kinda' like the bills i recieve.

The composition of the text on the cover seems to fit too, which i think is either planned or a lucky coincidence.

Why is the envelope shot with stock-photo background and lighting? How sterile and strange. I think it would look much better in context: on someone's table, or floor...
