Arni Kristjansson fant i 2011 opp The Staring Cover for utlendinger som er lei av å bli stirret i senk på offentlig transport.
“Through the years living here in Japan I’ve heard several non-Japanese friends of mine complain that they get stared at in public. When I heard of a recent incident I got the idea for this, a book cover for a fictional book called Why Do Japanese People Stare At Foreigners?
The idea is simple, print out this cover and wrap it around a book you are reading. Then, as soon as you get stared at on the train or in a public place (to the point where it becomes uncomfortable) take out the book and pretend to start reading it while giving the starer ample view of the cover. The starer is then made aware of the situation in the most Japanese of ways, through non-confrontation.”
Amanda Isernia og Janie Pendleton har, i hver sin tutorial, laget vesker av gamle bøker. Pendleton har benyttet coveret til Anne of Green Gables. Se bilder av resultatene og Youtube-videoer av den kreative prosessen nedenfor.
