Bullet sticker design for the (shrinkwrapped) cover of PULPHOPE. The book legally avoids an "adults only" tag because we made a late-stage editorial decision to remove all images of sexual penetration and depictions of XXX sex acts (there were more than a few). Shrinkwrapping is the most ethical way to deal with the content/community standards issue (the book is NOT for little kids), giving bookstore-owners the power of presentation depending on their own tastes and the different local markets.
Also, because the book's dimentions are almost perfectly square, we thought it'd be cool to have the book presented like the old LPs were, a "graphic album".
