At the end of last week I was delighted to discover that Building Bridges, the North Korea book co-authored with David Alton, is available for pre-ordering on Amazon. The news was doubly good because I was able to see the front cover for the first time and I think it is fantastic: eye-catching, memorable and unambiguous.
Unambiguous, perhaps, with the exception interest-piquing dancing North Korean women at the bottom of the cover. Their presence is explained once you realise what the overall picture behind the cover text is showing, but, until then, the women inspire a tiny amount of amused bewilderment and curiosity in the prospective reader.
I like it very much. Please tell me what you think in the comments below.
