Not knowing much about US history I'd never come across the 'green book' of the title so had to look it up https://restaurant-ingthroughhistory.com/tag/1960s/ . . . according to this article https://www.refinery29.com/en-gb/20...e-controversy-racism-don-shirley-family-story you won't learn much about said book from the film despite it being the film's inspiration and of course title.

As for the design of this steelbook: even if properly aligned not really feeling this as wraparound ... considering every poster I've seen for the film focuses on the important part of the car (with the passengers) I've got to say that the front end of the car is unnecessary and that the other edition is more pleasing with separate artwork for the back.
Not like the proposed HUNTER KILLER steelbook (KimchiDVD) where the wraparound sub artwork works well.

Not wild about the wraparound on this one. . . and the fact that Don Shirley never drove around in a teal or is it turquoise Cadillac - according to his brother Maurice Shirley, "My brother NEVER had a teal blue Cadillac, it was always a black limousine" is I guess not of major importance.
