The Blade Itself

Rather well-reviewed by Janet Maslin, this is a book that I wouldn't really be interested in reading - I'm not a thriller kind of guy. I do like the cover, though, and recognize two of the design elements -- the red slash and the cut type -- from recent posts. All that means is that I spend way too much time looking at book covers :-)

PS: Giles at Foreword had a post about yellow covers a few weeks back.

speaking of cut type, henry yee did a very nice cover a while ago with sliced type and image. you can find it on his blog at: http://henryseneyee.blogspot.com/2006/04/skin-game.html
