Kidney for Sale by Owner

Kidney for Sale by Owner

Salamander Hill Design, Elgin, Quebec, 2005

Description

Sometimes you get a title for a book that is so strong, it really steers you toward the final concept. Making the cover look like a classified ad fits the title perfectly. If this book had been titled The Marketing of Human Organs, this solution obviously would not have worked.

Juror Notes

We’ve seen this classified as idea, what, thousands of times. Yes, it works very nicely here because of the title surprise.
