The Worst Years of Your Life: Stories for the Geeked-Out, Angst-Ridden, Lust-Addled, and Deeply Misunderstood Adolescent in All of Us

Design and illustration by Catherine Casalino

I can't tell you how wonderful this cover is. Well, OK, I'll try.


You can almost smell the Ditto machine ink and the formaldehyde when you walk past this in the bookstore. Old geezers like me remember when everything given to you in school, be it report card, test paper, or syllabus, looked like this. Given the ages of the majority of contributors, the designer was super-smart to create a pre-PC era feel.

The back is fantastic as well: hand-written blurbs on lined notebook paper. Yes, you've probably seen that done before, but this is done *really* well.

I would show it to you but the iPhone that my wife won't let me buy yet wasn't in my pocket and I couldn't take a picture. Right, hon? ;-)

Buy this book from Amazon.com

I think this is one of the most unique covers I've ever seen.

I wouldn't buy the book though, it reminds me too much of my high school AP Bio class. But it's a great cover!

WORST points to the frog's ass.

It's perfectly conceived and perfectly executed. I've looked at this again and again in the store and on Catherine's website. Definitely a best of 2007, maybe THE best.

This does what Dirty Diplomacy didn't do for me. Would have been great if "Worst" had been erased and rewritten with pink eraser smudges left behind.

Michael said...

Agree with Angela - this would be even better if you could see a trace of a "BEST" that had been erased. Still a great cover, though.

I think your wife is brilliant to have you hold off on buying an iPhone
