Monochromatic Book Covers: A Slice of Color

The Link by Philip MacDonaldAbeBooks: Monochromatic Book Covers: A Slice of Color: A monochromatic color scheme is black, white plus all hues and saturations of a single color. It often lends to clean, elegant and eye catching art, and it's particularly loved by the publishing world. The most famous monochromatic book cover is George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty Four. The British first edition was published in both red and green (and no-one is really sure which one came first), and today they are both very collectible.

I have a picture of The Link, not 1984.

I liked that one better. I'll take out the parenthetical remark.
