Abraham Lincoln: Great American Historians on Our Sixteenth President

Design by Pete Garceau

Released just last week and staring at me this afternoon from the new non-fiction display. And so the list of books with no title on the cover grows.

(BTW, designer Garceau is responsible for the Rorschach-o-riffic The Political Brain.)

You have a great and original blog, congrats:)

And maybe you could answer to a curiosity of mine: Why the book covers change from country to country? It has to do with the editor's rights?

The same book after the translation has a different design and most of the times an worse one too.

Just a curiosity.

Hi Sofia:

Thanks for the kind words.

I asked the same question you did about two years ago, and one of my smarter readers gave the answer. Check out the comments on this post: http://tinyurl.com/6n3q9x

Hi there nice post, and I think this design is genious. I have an art blog here in San Diego and am a rookie at blogging, but found your site interesting and would like to invite you to my art blog.

I think you may enjoy the different labels and music videos and photography as experienced by an artist here in So Cal.

hope to see you soon.....

Just wanted to say you're blog is great. I've only recently begun reading and writing blogs (albeit poorly), but yours is honestly the most original and entertaining blogs I've seen. Thanks!

He looked a little younger in this picture than most of his usual potraits..

thank god they did not put that long ass title on the cover. It would end up looking like every other book on Lincoln (there must be well over a trillion now). Great take on something that could have so easily been crap.

I may be a long-time asshole (or may be I'm not), but I like a title on the cover.
Though it's right that a two/three lines title looks horrible.

this was cropped kind of strangely...not sure if I love it.

These are exactly the sorts of jackets that really just drive me nuts—the ones where the design just seems so obvious and logical and expected, where it seems like this must have been done before (but, of course, it hasn't)… the ones where I convince myself that if I had to do the jacket for a Lincoln book before seeing this one, of course I would've thought of this. But, of course, I wouldn't've.

Damn it.

Courtney Baker said...

I have to agree with Nick! I prefer a title on the cover, or else I think it looks like an art book.

Is the book really as squat as the image?

Joseph said...

damned_cat: it seemed of normal proportions when I saw it in the bookstore.

is this a picture from the money?
