You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover #295
- You can't judge a book by its cover - which is very true.
But you can like one cover version better than another...
The 35th (!!!) entry, The Museum of Desire, in Jonathan Kellerman's long running Alex Delaware/Milo Sturgis series releases in February on both sides of the pond. I quite enjoyed this series when it first came out and kept up for awhile, but am about 15 behind at this point. The US cover is on the left and the UK cover is on the right. First difference is the use of color vs. black and white. The US cover image does indeed resemble a (colorful) museum setting. At first I thought that it was light bulbs hanging down, but looking closer it is balls on strings. It's different, calling a vortex to mind. The UK cover has a very noir, crime scene feel to it. Like a lot of UK covers, there's a tagline. But I'm not sure 'One Night of Hedonism' would really draw me in. Neither cover is really calling out to me this week. But if forced to choose, I will go with the UK cover. What about you? Which cover do you prefer? Any plans to read The Museum of Desire?
