Crop of an Urdu book cover from 1974
The hypnotic halftone patterns on give a nice textural backdrop to the flame-like lettering on this well-worn cover.
Side note: it was a bit harder for me to find good Urdu book covers to photograph in this library because many of them had barcode stickers placed haphazardly on their front cover (whereas books written in right-to-left scripts had barcodes on their back covers). Such a shame!!
