The title of this blog comes from a Gaelic expression -"putting on the poor mouth"-which means to exaggerate the direness of one's situation in order to gain time or favour from creditors.

Wonderful cover art on the book. It reminds me of MC Escher optical illusions.
i love those....especially the second shot. good job.
What beautiful books spines! They don't make them like they used to.
Sadly, spine art really sort of diminished when dust-jackets came to the fore.I am always on the look-out for books with terrific spines.
Nice book you have there.
Beautiful examples Jams. I love the historical book spines.
It was a great theme. Ex Libris is one of my passions. Although I don't belong to the group, I'm always so curious about what people read, that I went everywhere to look at the presentations. Lots of fun! You got the prize, Jams. The spines are classy, and the book cover promises excitement.
Glad you enjoyed my selection Claudia!
Late catching up with photohunt this week. Love the photo of the book spines. The book cover is very intriguing. Great choices for the theme this week.
Those are lovely designs. I like the first image. Very interesting.
