    One of my favorite covers is that of Fluid Dynamics for Physicists by T. E. Faber:

    Yes, books on fluid mechanics often have nice covers, especially those for engineers.

    I wonder if it says anything on the difficulty of the problems in this textbook?

    I think my statement is a blanket statement on both the contents and cruel wrapping of the contents:wink:.

    What about these books? For me, I think both covers and titles are simple but cool. Can you find any scientific book contains a "rude" word like that? :DD:DD:DD
    About their contents: easy to read, good for freshmen or sophomore :biggrin:

    @Laurie K that's an interesting evolution of the design, but which of those is supposed to be nice?

    Here's one that had an impact on me. It's a cusp catastrophe and says a lot about the Universe in my opinion. But of course the Universe is non-linear so I'm not too surprised. In the example on the cover, the cusp displays a catastrophe dealing with traffic flow, i.e. when a wreck occurs and the associated PDEs are non-linear which is to be expected. basic pde covert.jpg

    This one depends on your definition of 'nice':

    Demystifier, I used the 4th one down at uni (red leather look with silver lettering) in the 70's so I would have to say any of the others.
