Literal text.

I saw these great book covers a while ago and thought I’d share them.

I love the Knots piece, although I can’t read the words that are tangled. I’ve heard a little about R.D Laing, and from what I can tell about this book, it presents knots in human relationships that he presents, but does nothing to untangle. An appropriate cover, perhaps.  Designed by Susan Walsh.

The red cover says Beyond Anger, in a book about Anger management. On a crumbled page, it is incredibly literal, and also quite effective. Designed by Hyun Joo Choi.
