So Bad So Good: 10 Worst Book Covers in the History of Literature

Clearly these folks did not look at romance covers (maybe they don't consider them "literature"?), where there are some really terrible doozies amongst the greatness. But do look through the ones they've selected, and be sure to read the quip above each cover. As they state, "Prepare to be stunned, baffled, confused and probably offended." My favorite godawful cover is the Tarzan comic, but the absolute worst for book concept is The Big Coloring Book of Vaginas: 30 Pages of Vaginas & Fun Activities. WTF? Coloring book = kids; fun activities with vaginas definitely not for kids.
