Hi there,
I noticed that they are replaying the singing detective on the BBC at the moment. If you haven't seen it, and you can access BBC iPlayer, watch it now. But that's besides the point, I was wondering if anyone has a high-res image of the cover of the book The Singing Detective that appears in the series? Or an actual copy of the book. I do know that the original script (reformatted) on amazon, but the cover isn't quite accurate, although it does have the image on it.

Man remember that when it first came out, will have to watch it again. The book cover would be awesome.
 
Do watch it again, I've discovered it for the first time and I really can't get enough.
Using the various images to be had on the internet, and my own imagination (curses, that's not allowed here!), i've pieced together a cover on photoshop.
Full HD
Here are some reference shots (I can only find them for the front.)
Big
Also big
Thoughts?

Looks good, printed with some wrap around edges it could go over a hardback book and sit on the shelf.

I've not seen the film version with Robert Downey Jr. But remember watching the series in the UK on TV and enjoying it.
