Carnivore Diet paperback, or when good hardcovers go bad

On top, the hardcover, which I blogged about more than a year ago and which I like.

On the bottom, the new paperback. The type, the tighter crop, and especially the treatment on the lower right (is that supposed to be a bite?) have made this a very pedestrian cover.

They seem to have eaten the grass. Isn't that supposed to be a vegetarian diet?

Actually, I do like the byte. It's better than this silly box. The black/white treatment of the author's name is quite effective. The title font is rotten, though.
BTW: They haven't only eaten the grass but also the sidewalk. Nothing like some minerals in your diet :-)

For some odd reason I really like these covers. I guess I'm a sucker fpr shadowy effects.
