So one day I’m in a bookstore and browsing the shelves for something to read I come across “Snuff” by Chuck Palahniuk, author of “Fight Club”. “Suff” is a great example of EYE-CATCHING covers, honestly, don’t tell me you are not reading this mainly for the picture above (and because I’m writing it OF COURSE).
Anyway, the point of this post is not the book itself (it’s an OK read, nothing compared to “Fight Club”) but the actual dust-jacket, or should I say dust-jacketS? You see, when I took off the dust-jacket I found… you know what I found? I found another, yes, ANOTHER dust-jacket, incredible isn’t it? Well, not really, it’s just a curious incident. But being sex, sex and MORE sex the subject of the book I thought that maybe they (the publishing people) had done this on purpose, a Double-Bagging Condom sort of thing… yea, I thought about it A BIT too much. Since this was the only copy available in the bookstore I’m still wondering whether or not I’m right… though I don’t think I’m right.
Have any of you had any interesting “printing” incidents? And would any of you like my extra dust-jacket? You could frame it and hang it on your wall as a piece of artwork. At the very leas it’s bound to be an excellent conversation starter for when your mom asks what the meaning of SNUFF is.
