Although I agree from a book selling standpoint that having the cut out not be real is an excellent idea, I have to admit that I was disappointed when I say that it wasn't.


Normally, I'd agree that trompe l'oeil is somewhat disappointing, but it kind of fits the story, too.

And the inner square is indented as well -- when I showed it to co-workers at the library, a lot of them had to actually feel the book to be sure. It's very well done.


This looks great--including the cover. I just added it to the ever expanding to read list but I think I may bump it up to include it in the R.I.P. Challenge. I am definitely in the mood for a few good gothic tales. I am finishing up Setterfield's The Thirteenth Tale right now.


How's that one? I've been thinking about adding it to my list.


I think it's your library edition or something that doesn't have the flap.... all the copies I've seen in bookstores do have the die-cut.


What? Noooooooooooooooooo! And I thought they were so smart, too! I might cry. I was so happy and excited.

I'm sorry that I lied to you, booksellers.
