You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover #169

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

UK cover
US cover
Val McDermid is one of my favourite mystery authors. I'm really looking forward  to Insidious Intent - the latest in the Tony Hill/Carol Jordan series. The US cover is on the left and the UK cover is on the right. Two quite different looks this week. The US cover is done in 'hot' colours with the burning picture, while the UK cover has cool tones with a starker picture as well. I don't like the font used on the US cover. So, easy decision for me this week - UK - I much prefer the overall look. Which cover do you prefer? Any plans to read Insidious Intent?  You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover is a regular feature at A Bookworm's World.

I'm with you - the UK cover appeals to me more.

Very excited that Val has another book coming out in this superb series. I'm with you on the font. The artwork on the US cover jumps out at you, sadly the print is awful. The artwork on the UK cover is also excellent and I'm happy that the publisher used a more traditional font on this one. This print suits her covers. UK wins it hands down.
