You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover #174

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

US cover
UK cover
 Jussi Adler-Olsen writes the Department Q series.  It's one you may not have heard of, but I highly recommend it. The seventh entry is The Scarred Woman. The US cover is on the left and the UK cover is on the right. Just looking at the two covers together, I am immediately drawn to the UK cover. It's striking and the size of the font grabs your attention. Interesting that it's the author's name that is so large and not the title. The US cover has the title and author in equal sized fonts. I do find that the red tag lines are a little lost in the black background on the US cover. This time 'round, I really like the scraggly (week three!) trees on the UK cover. So, overall I am going with the UK cover this week. Which cover do you prefer? Any plans to read The Scarred Woman? You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover is a regular feature at A Bookworm's World.

The UK cover looks more ominous so I'm going with it.
