Rip-offs #01

I just saw the one on the right side in a bookstore tonight, an evident rip-off of a book written by Orhan Pamuk, of which the cover was designed by Hakkı Mısırlıoğlu. Besides taking off my hat to the courage behind plagiarizing a book attached to two prominent figures from above, the three frames from the original cover are still unbelievably visible, half-transparently. What is even more heartbreaking is that the plagiarizer is an academic from Bogazici University, named Şahan Yatarkalkmaz.
