Here’s a look at the most popular cover ever, by famed digital print artist Paul Pope, which was used on all the books in the New York Public Library.
The book’s cover is a photograph of Pope with the words, “I AM AN EXCEPTIONAL ARTIST,” a quote from a quote attributed to Shakespeare.
He also wrote on the cover that “I HAVE MADE MY HISTORY,” a reference to the fact that Pope is Jewish.
The New York State Library’s website lists the book as a national treasure and a national honor, and says Pope has sold more than 2 million copies worldwide.
The Library’s Book of the Month Club has honored Pope for 20 years.
