You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover #238

- 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
Sophie Kinsella has a new stand alone coming out in February. The last few books haven't been as good as I had hoped, but I will still pick up this latest. The US cover is on the left and the UK cover is on the right. So, lots of similarities this week - a woman painting the title - note that the US cover is using her left arm and the UK uses the right arm. And it's different words being painted on each cover. I wonder how and why those decisions are made. US outfit all one colour that matches the author's name font. Two tone on the UK cover, with the shirt matching the font colour of the author's name. Larger ladder vs. step stool. Movement in all the type on the US cover, only on the 'one' in the UK presentation. The US cover has a background shot that lets the reader know the book takes place in London, England. Pretty much an even choice for me this week, but if pushed to choose, I'll go with the US cover as I like the background and movement of the title. 
What about you? Any plans to read I Owe You One? Which cover do you prefer?
You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover is a regular feature at A Bookworm's World.

They're pretty much the same to me but I like the figure of the woman on the US cover better so I'll go with it.

I actually really like the US cover. The background images of London Bridge, Big Ben etc really add some depth (wonder why they were left off the UK edition?).
The lettering overall is great & the longer ladder gives a feeling of larger porportion, like she’s announcing this to the world instead of what appears to be painted words on a wall (rec room perhaps-heh heh) using a step stool.

I like the UK cover the most.
