Exploring Uranus

I try to limit all entries on the Gallery of the Absurd to include only contemporary advertisements, labels, and signs that say something about our marketing and consumer culture. However, every now and again something comes along that strays slightly outside of the Gallery's self-imposed parameters, something that is almost an ad/label/sign, but just so good that I can't ignore it.

Here is such an entry. My good friend, Al Wirtes, and his family recently visited the Mamie Doud Eisenhower Public Library in Broomfield, CO, and while there, Al found some interesting books on our solar system. Here he is with A Look at Uranus:
He also found what promises to be a fun read, Let's Explore Uranus:
I'll refrain from further comment on these texts.

I guess in many ways, the cover of books are like product labels, right?
