Body Brokers

The title and subtitle of this book are pretty clear; is the bracelet overkill? (Seriously, I can't make up my mind.) And I guess there's a market for hands with gangrene? Yuk.

Overkill? Definitely. The title and subtitle tell the buyer enough without stating it again in the image. Maybe this was just a way to make the image more interesting because it's so lackluster. Oh well...not every cover is going to shine...

I'm not sure if its overkill, but I do think its a dumb sold tag. For some reason I think it might have more power if it was one of those sold tags on a little string or something. Maybe not...

Compare to design for "Stiff: The Curious Life of Human Cadavers" by Mary Roach

Too literal. Maybe a barcode burned into the skin?
