    Inspired by Alburt & Palatniks book on chess strategy - it reminded me on a de Chirico's painting! - I searched for funny covers of chess books.

    This one about Caro Kann is on the top:::

    From there association leads to this one:

    The first thing that came to mind was the Rudel books that all have odd covers.
