Paparazzi Shot Duplicated on Covers


Two books about navigating the grueling world of celebrity worship ended up with the same cover.

The book covers for Mark Ebner‘s new book Six Degrees of Paris Hilton (Simon Spotlight) and Howard Bragman‘s Where’s My Fifteen Minutes? (Portfolio Hardcover) both share the same stock photo of paparazzi poised to pounce on a celebrity. Jossip first spotted the similarities, and GalleyCat readers love tracking such coincidental art.

Here’s more from the post: “what photo is appearing on what book cover isn’t put on an intra-office memo that’s circulated throughout the industry. We’ll just chalk this copycat scenario as a statement on celebrity: So banal there’s less and less variety, and yet nobody seems to care.”
