Anna Rose: The Maddest of Madlands

They say both women and icebergs hide their true selves just below the surface.

Photoshop Disasters

The seal seems surprised by the woman standing (?) in such a small rowboat. The gentleman mirrors my concern for creatures and authors displaced by climate change/poor cover design. 

Thanks Perry. This is the cover of Anna Roses new book “Madlands”.

    Was the GA on Day 1 of their Photoshop course? Take a bunch of stock photos, arrange them together in what they considered an aesthetically pleasing format.

    It wouldn’t surprise me if none of the components of that photo (woman, man, rowing boat, seal, water, polar bear, clouds) were ever in the same place at the same time…

    She’s a pinguin in disguise.

    Maybe its not a photoshop, but a Flintstones boat and shes paddling to shore.

      This made me do an “ugly laugh.” Just so you know.

    unless its from a foreign country, skeptic is spelled wrong, too.

    • IAS

      Everything is from a foreign country when no-one knows where you are.

    @659c0b0337e15e67675f00c4362ff430:disqus While “skeptic” is more common in the US, “sceptic” is more comment elsewhere in the world. Courtesy of Wiktionary ( ), the ‘c’ form is derived from Latin, whereas the ‘k’ form could be regarded as either an Americanism or derived from the original Greek.

    At least they didn’t try for reflections….

    It seems obvious the GA wasn’t trying for verisimilitude, but that would have worked better if the figures had been printed, cut out, glued together in a collage, and photographed. Photoshop is the wrong tool.

    Uhm, service? What’s wrong with surface?

      Thanks for catching that Reinier. Updated!

    Anna Rose is from Oz. That’s why the sceptic spelling is correct.

    The cover reflects the sophisticated style in which climate disruption (AKA climate change, AKA global warming) is being touted amongst the clueless. Jo Nova (another Oz resident) has the antidote:

      Easily one of the most valuable contributions to this dialogue.

  • AnnPopovic

    Silly people! This is to illustrate the concept. She’s not actually IN the boat, she’s standing behind it. Global warming has turned the vast arctic into a puddle…

    That seal is creeping me out. I have a good mind to take him and just start randomly adding him to photos, kind of like the photobombing squirrel.

  • licensedtochill

    endorsed by Dr Flim Flammery I see…kiss of death then.

  • Lightstriker Stormyhahaha

    Climate change melts your legs.

  • thewolfkin

    the book is called “Madlands” it’s about crazy people. Maybe the cover is just too clever for ya’ll

  • Ed Darrell

    So, you got no answer for climate change, except to point and laugh at the cover of the book? That’s the good old American spirit that built the Transcontinental Railroad and Brooklyn Bridge, eh wot?

    What’s a “climate sceptic”? Someone who doesn’t like weather as a general concept (haha)? I honestly don’t know if that short-legged lady is trying to convert someone who DOES or DOESN’t believe that climate change is real.

    Americans so often make up “tactful” names for people with certain opinions, but if you’re not in the know, you just don’t know what the hell they’re talking about. It’s like “pro-life” actually meaning “anti-choice”, but how are you supposed to know if you’re not American?

    what nice photo


  • Chris

    Lies have short legs

  • Lenore

    Honestly this cover seems really tongue-in-cheek to me. Are you all really taking it that seriously?
