+++ The Taglines on the Covers +++

Habt Ihr Euch auch schon einmal die Nase am Bildschirmmonitor platt gedrückt, um die Taglines zu entziffern? Taglines, so nennt man die schlagzeilenartigen Slogans, die man eher von Filmplakaten gewohnt ist, die jedes Cover gewisser "Drei ???"-Buchformate zierten und die Aufmerksamkeit des neugierigen potentiellen Käufers erregen sollten. Stumpfsinnige Worthülsen? Effektheischende Stereotypie? Oder blitzt zuweilen Wortwitz durch? Urteilt selbst!
