As a school librarian, my wife often gets library supply catalogs (and orders from them). I was particularly struck by an offer in the latest Demco catalog:
The first thing that struck me is that using the myth of the horned Viking helmet as an icon for history was not very respectful of the scholarship of historians.
The second thing that struck me was that the “modern” label for science fiction was similar to the labels used in the 1960s. I think I remember that fat rockets were used on spine labels in the 50s, but I couldn’t find an example on the web quickly. In any case, these labels would be better described as “retro” not “modern”.
If you look more closely, you’ll see that the artist made the “star-in-front-of-the-moon” mistake—probably deliberately to irritate science fiction readers.
The final straw was the e-book sticker. What exactly do you stick an e-book spine sticker to?
