Too Much of a Muchness

In case you haven't noticed, a lot of similar looking designs— especially on book covers—have been showing up lately. Covers that depict photos of women's hair, shoes, backs of heads, bodies with the head cropped off, melting ice cream, things encased in ice, flush left Helvetica, and vegetables that look like genitalia seem to be everywhere. Here's another one to add to the list. No more rough cut rectangles and crudely rendered arms please. Yeesh. What were these guys thinking?
Yes, I realize that one of these is a film poster.
