Tunneling to the Center of the Earth

Designer info to come

At first this struck me as a little jumbled, with little visual hierarchy, but then I learned (according to this glowing review) how appropriate this is: "things explode in Kevin Wilson’s stories: expectations, parents, body parts, cows." There is a story about cheerleaders obsessed with model cars, and how nice that the image reminds us of an exploded view.

This is fun. It's always enticing to see a concept so removed from it's title, yet so tied to it once you start reading the piece...

The title is a little hard to find, but I really like it. I wonder if it would have worked as a textless cover?

It would have worked as title-less cover if you want people to think it's a book on model race cars.
