Can you spot the goof on the front cover of Paul M. Sammon‘s book-Future Noir: The Making of Blade Runner?

There is a goof on the front cover of Sammon’s book. Can you find it? I will give you two clues:

1. Think Leon (This clue tells you the history behind the goof.)
2. Flipped (This clue tells you what caused the goof-in my opinion.)

For those who do not have the book please go to this site:

This is a picture of the front cover of the book. The picture shows as much detail as the cover of the book (if you have the book in front of you.).

I believe that this book should be required reading for anyone that is a fan of the movie. I do have two criticisms of the book.

1. Sammon is 80% fan and 20% critic. I believe that 50% fan and 50% critic would be better.

2. There is no index. If you want to find something about the “unicorn” you have to go through the book page by page. Not good!

I would like to clarify first...
This type of goof happens often during the printing process of books, mags, newspapers, etc., and doesn't reflect on P.Sammon's integrity. The goof would belong to one Lili Schwartz (sorry Ms.Schwartz) who designed the cover.

That being said..,

The bottom photo of Deck is reversed/flipped.
