Ostinato


This book is the autobiography of Louis-Rene des Forets. Very lyrical prose this, a good read. On the cover I have put selected passages from the book and the title of the book is revealed in the passages. I did not want to have the title again on the cover as you see it, but the publishing house guys said that people can't read it otherwise. The word Ostinato means obstinate/recurring.

I agree with u regarding the title but don't expect the layman in India to be as sharp as u are. After all they are the buyers and its a money-minting business. Jo dikhta hai woh bikta hai!
