with our first book.
This experiment may involve a bit of scrolling.
before you see our first cover,
I want to tell you the title.
And then I want you to
what the cover looks like.
If you have issues with scrolling
The book's title
Think about that for a minute.
Are you imagining the cover?
Think about that cover for another minute.
And for another minute.
This isn't a card trick or anything.
I'm just ensuring scrolling.
Here's the book cover:
Who else is massively disappointed by this picture?
I know I am.
should have a deranged mutant on the cover.
Like a spider with a cat's head.
Or a cat with spider eyes
walking on a web.
There could could even be a Fly Dog
stuck in the web.
That would be a cover I'd like to see.
In other news,
one thing you never want printed
on the cover of your book
is this quote:
Deb'y Gaj has done Mr. Mahaffey a great disfavor.
You just know everyone who reads his poetry now
is going to have ridiculously
high standards for him.
Eh. It was sheer.
There was some perfect.
I dunno about any sheer perfection.
Ms. Deb'y Gaj has also done apostrophes a great disfavor.
They know they don't belong in her name there.
If you can't name all of the reasons
why I love this next book,
you clearly haven't been keeping up with things around here.
Mr. Edward Gorey.
Cats with top hats and canes.
It's a trifecta of awesome.
Let's take a look at this next cover.
I appreciate a lot of
e e cumming's work.
for someone who doesn't use punctuation
that cover looks like a series of
and exclamation points.
That's a risk you run
with random overlapping shapes.
How strung out do the babies on this last cover look?
