Cover Art Controversy!

January 30, 2009, 8:46 am

I guess that there is a dearth of library stock photos. Take a look at the cover of my book and then at Rachel Singer Gordon's new book :

Interesting huh? Different publishers, but similar designs, yes? Rachel has many more subscribers than I do, so perhaps a few people will mistakenly purchase my book instead. Hmmm, I wonder if maybe Lauren Pressley's new book will share our same cover art too?

Thanks to a loyal reader for discovering this. I promise that I have not given up on DBL .

In other cover art news. A forthcoming book by Emory librarians features the Georgia Tech Library on the cover. The West Commons is nice and all, but I would have gone with the East Commons because it looks more modern. I have seen C. Forrest present before and he is pretty good, so I am sure that his book will be interesting as well. See, put Tech on the cover and I'll sell for you.
