You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover #70

- You can't judge a book by its cover - which is very true. 
But you can like one cover version better than another.....

US cover
UK cover
Michael Connelly's new book, The Crossing releases this fall and it is most definitely on my must read list. The US cover is on the left and the UK cover is on the right. So, at first glance, I thought they were identical. Closer inspection reveals different fonts, font sizes and colours - and a trestle that is coming or going. The UK is certainly bolder, but it's a bit too sepia toned for me. So this week I'm going with the US cover. Which cover do you prefer? Do you plan on reading The Crossing? You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover is a regular Saturday feature at A Bookworm's World.

It's amazing how similar and different these two are. I prefer the boldness of the US cover, too. It just stands out more than the UK.

Agreed! US cover is brighter & has a nicer font. Have a great weekend Luanne :-)
