Book Covers. Who knew that a book released in the States would have a different book cover than one released in the United Kingdom. For the same book! I found this article about book covers over at the Millions Blog and thought you might be interested. Read the entire article here. Visually, I thought these were very interesting.
U.K. and U.S. book covers often differ from one another, suggesting that certain layouts and imagery will better appeal to readers on one side of the Atlantic rather than the other. These differences are especially striking if you look at the covers side by side. The American ones are on the left.
|Hmm. I think I like the American one for this book.|
|The British one has a little bit more going on for me this time.|
|I’m not sure I like either. What do you think?|
|Is there a reason this book looks so retro?|
|I’m leaning toward the U.K. one, though I’m not real sold on either.|
|The American one seems a bit more intriguing. But I like the U.K. one, too.|
|I definitely like the U.K. cover better for this book.|
|Both of these are cool, I think.|
|I go back and forth on this one.|
|I like the U.K. one for this book. If you haven’t read it, I recommend it.|
|I like the crosses and the spiders. Maybe a combination of both.So what do you think? Do you judge books by their covers? Do you have clear favorites? As always, I love hearing from you.My website.
