Best Book Cover Ever, Part 2


The book cover bearing the planaria worm (not, alas, a squid, but nonetheless a character whose comedic potential has never been adequately explored) and his posse will continue to yield visual pleasures and commentary. As it happens, I cannot resist the visual joke provided by invertebrates on a spine. Professor Buchsbaum and the University of Chicago Press (first edition 1938, second edition, 1948; this a fourth printing in 1955) refuse to disappoint.

I can't get enough of these spineless jokes.
