Weird book titles...

Our new brief involves designing book jackets, we have to pick three from a list of titles. The list of titles are taken from the oddest book titles annual competition. (some of which you can view here).
After much thought, I've opted for 'The joy of chickens', 'Highlights in the history of concrete' and 'Stray shopping carts of Eastern North America: A guide to their field identification'....
I'm struggling though. I was initially really excited about this project, but my ongoing struggle with being too literal, combined with an unusual lack of inspiration is making getting started a bit tricky.
But uh, here's a start, highlights in the history of concrete.


Yeah... literal is sort of my thing. Oh dear.
