How good is your eyesight? Spot the book!

Friday, May 27th, 2011

It’s always a little thrill to see our books featured in unusual places – caught on camera behind a TV presenter, in a poster that we didn’t commission… in a photograph promoting the launch of a new optometrist office…

Yes, that’s right. We just got word that Stop Me, by Richard Jay Parker has featured in a funky photoshoot for Unique Optique – a sassy new optometrist office in Frederick, Maryland, USA. The talented photographer, James Atkins, is apparently a fan of Richard’s novel and so it happened that the book ended up as part of the inspired picture (how marvellous!).

And here you have it:

And here’s a close-up…

And if you needed this zoomed-in shot to see the book, I suggest you run along to Unique Optique…or to an optometrist a little closer to home perhaps.

P.S. And check out the Twitpic competition on Richard jay Parker’s website, inspired by this shoot!
