Does anybody find the “characters” on the cover of the Manning books strange? I do. They don’t really relate to the subject matter. To me it’s kind of just a “give up” on Manning’s part. I assume somebody there said, “it’s such a pain coming up with cover art, lets just put pictures of old people in strange clothes on the covers”.
My two year old son is confused by the move also. He looked at my copy of Elicpse in Action this morning and said, “Daddy, Santa Claus?”. I had to say, nope…. Just the man that Manning associates with the Eclipse IDE. AKA…. Eclipse Man.
