All the crap on Earth

Raoul Comments: Art Director’s challenge: “Here’s a Christmas ornament and a G.I. Joe. Make me a cover!”

Published 1968

Actually, that cover IS a classical work of art!I would touch it without protective gloves.I've seen worse. Far, far, worse.Interesting, but I would still read it in public.Middlng: Neither awful nor awfully goodWould not like to be seen reading that!Awful... just awful...That belongs in a gold-lame picture frame!Gah... my eyes are burning! Feels so good!Good Show Sir! (Average: 6.86 out of 10)

    The optimistic interpretation is that the orange stuff is blancmange. . .

    Well, who am I to judge… I’ve made a few book covers with toy props myself:

    @A.R.Y.—But your cover is kinda cool. At least it doesn’t look like the toy prop is being flushed down a cosmic space toilet!

    The Martian colonists eagerly awaited the annual arrival of the knick-knacks, tchotchkes, and gewgaws.

    Sputnik repurposed for medical exams for very large space-folk?

    No matter how I tilt my head, I can’t get my trifocals to… oh, it’s the cover art… never mind…

    @ARY: Yours shows some imagination and also several different colors. Also, it’s in focus.

    @Hammy: The most likely idea.

    I can’t believe this one has a lower rating than the last one, with Cliff himself on the cover. At least that’s in focus. I’m glad @Emster said something because I just got new glasses and was wondering if I needed to go back and complain.
