Pure and Sorry

Ah…so what was an original idea is now ‘The New Thing’

Why is it proving popular in these tough economic times when production costs are being kept to a minimum?

1) It catches the eye on the shelf — thus giving the books more presence and stand-out

2) It means retailers are likely to stock at least two copies of the book (side-by-side) giving it more prominence and maybe even making it look like a ‘bigger’ book than it is in reality.

Simple but effective.

We much prefer the impact of the “Pure’ version but now are we about to see a deluge of “Cover Twins” ?

    Sorry was certainly not a copycat, as the HB jacket was mono it made perfect sense to have inverted spines.

    Also, it has a few bob spent on finishes (soft touch etc..), so no scrimping here!

Any Comments?
