The Fifth Vial


What can I say? I'm a sucker for type which is this married to the image. Possibly something else could have been added....but if I saw this in the store, the simple type through glass effect would have caused my hand to instantly lift up and grab this book. This is a medical thriller about illegal organ trading. Incidentally, it reminds me of Michael Ian Kaye's cover for Scott Heim's In Awe from 1998:

Seriously Flynn, your eye for awesomeness is killing me. I too love the test tube creepiness. And though I know little of font/type, the badass-ness of these covers rocks my world.

"In Awe" of you...
