LSD in space. Look I know that's not the best I've done. But, it's hard thinking of something terrible to put here.Click for full image

ash966 Comments: If your artist is unable to create and illusion of 3 dimensions (the nose and the spaceships), should you really emphasize the fact with a 3-D font? The spaceships look like children’s toys and the font looks like something and 8th-grader doodles in her notebook. Also, what is a “ram song”? I don’t think I want to know.
Published 1984

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: 7.16 out of 10)

    Rockin’ the Princess Leia hairdo there, sir. I assume there’s one on the other side?

    Clearly “Ram Song” means “Origami for the buzzed.”

    This, I take it, is another of those awkward library editions?

    Dandruff AND spaceships. SHAMPOO YOURSELF, SIR!

    I’m assuming the white spots are the remnants of the holy water the priests sprinkled over this thing to try and make it go away.

    And, as with a previous cover, I like how proud St Paul is to tell us that this is indicative of the mind of the city. Makes me wonder what’s in the water there…

    It sort of reminds of an aquarium. Blue tropical fish swimming circles around the submerged head of a faux-classical statue, of the sort you get in garden centres.

    River Song’s hunky brother?

  7. Anti-Sceptic Says:

    Would it have killed the artist to put at least one ram on the cover?

    Maybe some of those sheep used for censoring naughty bits could be added, standing in for the absent ram.

    If ‘goat song’ is the etymological source of ‘tragedy’, is ‘ram song’ something that’s sad and pathetic but also a bit funny?

    @Tat Wood: I thought ‘ram song’ was supposed to be angry and horny…
