Design by Rex Bonomelli

A two-word critique: fucking kapow.

The title placement and photo are just brilliant. Shame about the big vox pop that looks like it's coming from his crotch.

Love it! It's so perfect for his style of writing and subject matter too.

A great review on this site: http://fiveboroughbooks.blogspot.com/2009/06/and-in-this-corner-herring-wonder.html

I read the book, and I loved it. Ames is honest and hilarious.

What about the insides of books rather than just the covers (which, as we know, we shouldn't be judging books by) ?

Anon: I don't do much w/ interiors because I don't have time or budget -- the BDR isn't my job. There might be a blog out there that focuses on interiors-- if there isn't, start one!

It is a cover with considerable pop at first glance, but I'm slightly bothered that the Ames who's allegedly thrown the punch is really in a defensive crouch.
