Please suggest book covers (or others) I can look at that are extremely text-heavy images.

I want to have a piece of promotional material designed for a client. It's not a topic that lends itself easily to imagery and I am considering getting someone to design something that uses text instead of images.
Here are 2 examples of what I mean:
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close
and Things I Want To Punch In The Face.
I remember at least one other book cover that came out several years ago where the graphics were words in the shape of Manhattan Island but I can't remember what the book was.
Can you please suggest other examples of book covers (or similar, posters, whatever) where the main graphic component is text, so that I can show this to a designer? And if anyone knows how I could find out who actually designed these specific books, that would be amazingly helpful. Or point me to people whose work is similar. Thanks!
