Design by Alison Forner

There's got to be dozens of book jackets and covers over the years that have utilized the Lite-Brite, but dammit if I can't think of any. (Click on the image to see a larger version; even though it's pretty clearly a photo of a Lite-Brite layout I'm wondering if showing that more clearly -- that is, letting the Lite-Brite grid show -- would underscore the brain-mapping aspect of the research that informs books like these.)

UPDATE: Designer Alison Forner wrote in to tell us "The background grid is actually more visible on the printed jacket--you can't really see it on the jpeg." Thanks Alison!
