‘This is not a cover image’ – bad covers of books on Foucault

tumblr_inline_n59vvohFao1r1ogyfA set of images of covers of books on Foucault… and their problems. I actually like the Lois McNay cover, but there are some hideous ones here…

Something to bear in mind for Foucault’s Last Decade, though I continue to like the cover image for the book Jeremy Crampton and I edited on Foucault – one of only two times in my publishing career where my/our suggestion for the cover was enthusiastically welcomed by the press (the other was The Birth of Territory). All my book covers are here.

    This is quite funny, and it just so happens a colleague and I were talking about bad book covers this morning and how it’s so unnecessary. I can’t even think of the thought process behind some of them.
