The last post was wordy, so this one’s just a double take. If you like these posts, you’re in luck, as I’ve got a wealth stocked up right now! In this edition, we’ve got a book that’s been out for a couple of years and one that will be coming out.
Lifted by Wendy Toliver isn’t out yet but will be published by Simon Pulse in June 2010. Obviously the cropping’s different, but it’s the same stock image. Although I think it works as well as it does for Safe, there’s a part of me hoping this gets changed. Having the same exact cover, along with a very similar use of location for title will get so confusing for not only readers but those who serve them.
Do you think one’s better than the other?
Oh, one of our readers, Terry, pointed out this one, too:
