John’s Art Direction: No, see, boss, it’s not pornographic – it’s surrealism!

I give this a Bruce Forsyth and a Bullseye.

    Salvador Dali called and he wants his ear back!

    I spat out my Yazoo at the office and now I’m getting funny looks.

  3. SI Says:

    The guy in the background is clearly running away from the scary ear nose women.

    Speaking of which, having her nostril in her armpit doesn’t make for a pleasant day!

    After I clicked through to the NSFW version, I thought: ‘NICE to see you, to see you ….’

    Also, cover image aside, TIMEPIVOT is a terrible title. The ‘MEP’ part of it just leaps out at me, as if it’s a cropped version of the phrase ‘Elias Canetti MEP, I voted for the legalisation of naked women with enormous ears where there heads should be.’

  5. Adam Roberts Says:

    SI: ‘The guy in the background is clearly running away from the scary ear nose women.

    You don’t think he’s running towards her?

  6. Adam Roberts Says:

    Tch! ‘… where their heads …’

  7. Phil Says:

    What a terrible pimple you have on your nostril.

    Oh, and I see you have another, identical one on your earlobe.

    Wait, what? How does this even begin to make sense? Is it a book about ear/nose/naked woman hybrids being chased through surrealism land?

  9. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Ah, the woman of my dreams — a great listener and has a nose for opportunity!

  10. SophaLoaf Says:

    This is too obvious to be surrealistic, especially with the sun/moon eye. I as the spectator feel insulted.

  11. Leo Says:

    that cover is enough to get me to read it.

  12. Yama Says:

    Yeah, same here, except I can find nothing about this book. You’d think someone’d have read it.

  13. Terry Says:

    You think the cover might have something to do with that? The whole thing is brought out of the sublime into the surreal by the masterful positioning of the eyeball in the background. I wonder what the original would fetch at Sotheby’s.

  14. Matt Says:

    I think this cover’s actually stolen or reused art – Kingsley Amis’ James Bond continuation novel Colonel Sun has the same cover in its first edition.

  15. A.R.Yngve Says:

    So the publisher wanted to imply that James Bond books are inherently Surrealist? (Which they are…)

  16. Tom Noir Says:

    This cover is really… an earful??

  17. Jaouad Says:

    Great. That’s just what everyone needed. The sun staring at bums.

  18. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    How does she stay upright?

  19. JuanPaul Says:

    Contrapposto applied to a figure with a nose and an ear in place of a head, arms or shoulders? Good show, sir.

  20. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Twitch Plays God.

  21. fred Says:

    Mel Brooks lampoons LOTR/fantasy films. This scene is from the R rated directors cut.

  22. Tat Wood Says:

    ‘Didn’t he do well?’ is a downmarket ‘Good Show Sir!’.

  23. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @fred: lemme guess. ‘Hear and Smell Friend and Enter’?

  24. fred Says:

    @DSWBT: The Nose and Ears of Saueronkraut.

  25. THX 1138 Says:

    This is like one of those “How the brain sees your body” diagrams.

  26. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Oooh, good show THX. Praise Ghu they left out the tongue.

  27. anon Says:

    @A.R.Yngve#9: But she’ll also always hear your drunken stumbles and smell out your BS – not to mention she’ll be way nosear than any other woman.
