The Power of Parody

As a book cover designer, I've heard innumerable requests to make a cover look like someone else's bestseller. Clearly it's difficult for many to distinguish between a book's popularity and the quality of its cover design. The Secret, The DaVinci Code, Made to Stick, Purple Cow, Good to Great, Blink and of course The Tipping Point are routinely requested. Maybe that explains why this Gladwell cover parody site made me spit out my coffee in laughter this morning. Check out the Malcolm Gladwell Book Generator.

And here is my own spoof.
