The Mercury Visions of Louis Daguerre

I'm not a big fan of the old-timey cover, and this one doesn't change my mind. Does anyone else think this is just too cramped? Too much space given to the frame and matting is one of the bigger issues, I think.

I love it. It grabbed my attention and it's perfect for the subject.

I love the cover, ever so relevant, created from an old photograph, but more importantly, the novel is a brilliant debut for the author. One of the best reads of the year, and perhaps many years. I thoroughly enjoyed it. A talent to watch...
