Golb's theory

Someone mentioned the other day Golb's book; and this brought to mind a most
curious fact-
the cover of Golb's book prints the Qumran text it uses as its background
upside down.
How can one take seriously a book the editors of which are so completely
incapable of even reading the script?
I don't mean to pick on them; but if they are presenting an academic work-
even if it tends to be more popular than academic, ought they not have the
good sense to print the DSS the right way?
The paperback repeats the error: so has no one told Simon and Schuster or do
they simply not care?
