Good Design Speaks for Itself

This is absolutely one of those situations that I love:

Making what you have work.

The only images of The Bat available were scans from the yellowing wood pulp pages... how do you make a cover out of that?

By turning your weaknesses into strengths.

Kudos to Altus Press.

"Turning Your Weaknesses Into Strengths"

That's some pretty inspirational stuff right there, ya Bastard. Makes me think of the shot for shot remake of Raiders of the Lost Ark done by those kids. Half the fun of watching it comes from knowing what's coming next, and wanting to find out how they are going to pull off the next series of shots. Snake pit? Submarine? Melty-face Nazi? The entire appeal of that thing is watching people do more with less.

Yes, this works beautifully, Bill.

Great contrast between the red /graphics and the yellowed pulp.
