Is there anything worse than seeing a drop-dead beautiful cover only to find out that it is from another country? (Ok, yes, there are way worse things, but can we all agree that it is at least a little heartbreaking?) Like my Why, Publishers, Why?! posts this won’t be a weekly feature, but every once in awhile I’m going to be focusing on beautiful covers I covet but can’t have because I don’t have the money I spend on books as it is, let alone books from other countries that come with international shipping charges (yet…I will be rich someday…right?).
Today’s focus: Nevernight by Jay Kristoff
I don’t hate the US cover for this book, but the UK edition is just so stunning. I seriously love everything about it: The white background, the dynamic and detailed bird (raven?), the font used for the tagline. Just everything. The font for the US title is interesting, and I like the wings, but in my mind bird > person on covers. Every time. (I’m definitely thinking about the original Raven Boys cover vs the PB edition here–that might have to be one of my Why, Publishers post).
As always, I’d love to hear from you! Which cover do you prefer?
