You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover #120

- 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
Canadian cover
Peter Robinson writes one of my favourite series - Inspector Banks. His newest novel, When The Music's Over is the 23rd in the series. The US cover is on the right and the Canadian cover is on the right. Same type of images - ferris wheel, boardwalk and water used on both covers. The nighttime image on the US cover is quite striking and definitely captures my attention. The Canadian cover almost looks like a photo that has gotten wet. Different fonts. I'm not a fan of splitting up the title and changing it's font size on the Canadian cover. So, US cover for me this week. Any plans to read When the Music's Over? Which cover do you prefer? You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover is a regular feature at A Bookworm's World.

US cover for me as well. The author's name seems to be the most important part of the Canadian cover.

Overall I find them both pretty - but upon opening the post, my eyes went directly to the US cover. It really does grab attention.

I'm with you on this. Dislike that the title is split on the Cdn cover. The ferris wheel on the US cover looks US cover it is!
