Tim Tyler - Memetics - 3rd prototype book cover

The third prototype cover for my 2011 "Memetics" book.

This one has "idea" lightbulbs clustered around a child's head in a manner that resembles sperm clustered around an egg.

It is intended to symbolise the competition between ideas for limited mental resources. I've been using images like this one to symbolise memetics for quite a while, now.

For earlier versions of this image, see here and here.

For the earlier prototypes see:
