This “circle” cover has two recurring themes that I like. The first is the circle-within-a-circle idea which Schmidt incorporates on a number of his covers. In this case, it’s the circular steering wheel that can’t seem to stay inside the circular border. The second is the rearview mirror. I’m a sucker for artwork where glass reflects or refracts the object you are meant to see but is otherwise out of the picture. So overall, a decent cover.
