New Angelina Jolie Biography Provides a Textbook Case in Lousy Book Covers

They really could have just gone ahead and titled this one How to Destroy any Commercial Potential for Your New Book for Dummies. Behold, the cover of Andrew Morton’s upcoming tell-all Angelina: An Unauthorized Biography, which is due out on August 3. There seems to be a three-pronged plan for failure here:

1) Write a book about one of the most beautiful women in the world.
2) Put a picture of the back of her head on the cover.
3) Build yourself a home out of the unsold copies when you go bankrupt from your horrendous decision.

Memo to St. Martin’s Press, the publishing house behind this atrocity: If you just had to go with a shot from behind, you should have aimed a little lower.
