Edgar Allen Poe's shadow

I bought this small edition of Edgar Allen Poe stories and poems from a vendor on the side of the road near the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge outside of Taos. I've always loved how the stain, or whatever it is, across the surface of the cover looks like an ominous, but appropriate, shadow. I guess if it was a book of Issac Watts' works it wouldn't have the same effect.
I'm filing under "Accidental Art", but I guess "Accidental Graphic Design" would be a more accurate category.
