the movie!
so you can make out what it all says

The book title looks like it came straight from the movie trailer
but it's the other way round, the design is not by Saul

Hitchcock's most famous movie, the shocker that still keeps people away from showers. Janet Leigh is a woman on the run who befriends Mama's boy hotel clerk Norman Bates (Anthony Perkins). What is Norman's sinister secret? Will Vera Miles find her sister? And just where is Mrs. Bates? With John Gavin, Martin Balsam.

What I like?
While Vertigo is Hitchcock's most beautiful movie, Psycho is his best. Among the scariest movies ever made, and also one of the classiest and most successful horror movies.
The funny thing is nobody wanted to sink money into it, so Hitchcock got stuck with all the loot after he had made it very cheaply (that's why it's in B/W).
