usually, we love surprises.
like authors who just drop into our laps.
or on-time release dates for the second title in that series we just love.
and customers who pop by the shop with home-baked goodies.
also, say, when a favorite graphic designer’s estate releases an abc book for ages 2+. all that white space allows the two-year-old to focus on the picture and the simply-worded text: ___ is for ___.
a is for anteater.
b is for bear.
c is for cat.
j is for %&*@$#!
and it doesn’t even look like a donkey.
ah, the book-by-cover cliche.
