Remember this post, a long time ago, about changing covers on Judy Blume? My coworker and I got to talking about the changing covers of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice — check out what vibes these different cover portrayals give the books:
Good models on this one, for sure.
Twilight inspired? I mean, the quote at the top says “The Love That Started It All.” That wasn’t Romeo and Juliet? Alas, this one has no people and gives an edgy vibe.
This gorgeous cover is apparently a rare find from UK’s “Book of the Month Club” copyright 1996. It took an hour to find an image of it, so it’s borrowed from Ebay (obviously, I kept the copyright on it there). This is my coworker’s favorite, and I have to say, it is beautiful. Just compare this one to my favorite — two entirely different takes on the book, no?
Do you have a favorite? Do any speak to you more? I – gulp – have NOT read this book, so I can’t give an opinion on content to cover matching. But that last one I’d pick up in a heart beat (as I would pick up the one I can’t locate an image from — think gorgeous old pink dress).
