Image of the dust jacket of a book, rendered so that the entire dust jacket appears to have been laid flat against the picture plane. The title, author and other text are rendered in black on a white background. The majority of the dust jacket is devoted to text. The front cover is illustrated with photographic images depicting the faces of the two men who are the subject of the book (Lou Gehrig, Knute Rockne.)
