Polaroid Wit

Jack Driscoll's latest book of short stories is called The World of a Few Minutes Ago. It was published by Wayne State University Press. The cover was designed by Maya Rhodes, using an image by Markus Gann.

My daughter is committed to the Polaroid format. She edited a book about Polaroids not long ago, also producing Polaroid note cards and a Polaroid journal.
However, the cover of Jack Driscoll's book of stories is the first place I ever have seen the gradual,  observable Polaroid developing process used as the premise for a graphic design. The hand-drawn lettering mimics Sharpie captions.
