  1. The Syphilis Can Come in a Beautiful Package cover is rather unsettling with the pink writing all over his face. Is that a book or a pamphlet from the Health Department? Probably not a cover to hang on the wall for friends to see. lol


  2. Aw, that’s a boring cover for The Price of Temptation. Much prefer the painted one with the Improbably Huge Trouser Bulge. 😀

    Syphilis boy reminds me of that episode of Friends when Joey was a model for posters about VD. It kind of cramped his style with the ladies.

  3. Ok, I should ‘fess up – that syphilis “cover” is actually a postcard I picked up at Pride last year – unsurprisingly, it’s from StopSyphMN. 🙂

  4. LMAO…

    LMAO.. I’m still laughing!

    I liked it better when I thought that was actually a real book!

  5. HBWMECG definitely fits him! Though at first, I was all ‘how does she know he’s a blond?’, then I got to the 3rd cover. ahhh. That’s how.

  6. What I’m loving is that some of these cover makers seem to think that a hoodie can pass for a cassock.

  7. Goodness!
    “Etched in Skin” makes me think of TB tests. Not good.
    I am hoping the syphilis “cover” is a public health poster and not a book title.
    He does have remarkable cheekbones.
