Twenty book covers featuring body parts

Emily Temple posted twenty gorgeously designed book covers featuring body parts at Flavorwire.

One book cover to make the grade: How to Be Inappropriate, a collection of humorous nonfiction by Daniel Nester, a journalist, essayist, poet, editor, and teacher.

Nester's first two books, God Save My Queen (Soft Skull Press, 2003) and God Save My Queen II (2004), are collections on his obsession with the rock band Queen. His third, The History of My World Tonight (BlazeVOX, 2006), is a collection of poems.

Among the praise for How to Be Inappropriate:
A "deeply funny new collection of booger-flecked nonfiction"
--Time Out New York

"His stories are, as the title suggests, inappropriate, and they often engender squeamishness, discomfort, and laughter. But they are fresh and, at times, touching, qualities that make this an enjoyable read."
--Library Journal

"One of the year's funniest books."
--Largehearted Boy
