Saturday Photo Hunt - The Theme is "Fake"

This is a photo of the cover of my beloved jazz Fake Book.
What is a fake book, you ask?
A fake book only has the melody voicing and chords for the piano accompaniment.
I accompany many singers and I couldn't live
without my fake book. I can just scan the melody voice and play my own
accompaniment. No slowly chewing my way through long and often boring
piano parts. I have a fake book for Rock, Pop, Jazz and classical music.
Happy Hunting!
