Four colourful bookcover designs, clockwise from left, a book in shades of brown showing a brick wall with a pawn shape cut into it, like a cartoon mouse-hole. Next a yellow cover showing two pawns as tightrope-walkers high above city skyscrapers – when their tightropes cross, one of them will fall, which refers to the title “Sharp Endgames”. Next a royal purple cover showing a pawn in front of multi-coloured upward-pointing arrows – in the clouds above a chess king can faintly be seen. Lastly at the front, “The Secret Life of Bad Bishops”, which apparently shows a classical painting of three bishops, though it’s actually a triple portrait of Cardinal de Richelieu. (Colorful, multi-coloured, book cover, book-cover.)
