Hmmm... same image on these covers??

Monday, August 23, 2010

I know I haven't been around much lately (didn't even post a Sunday Salon) but it's been crazy. What can I say? I guess until March 2011 it's going to stay this way so I might as well deal and just know that it'll end eventually. BUT... the reason I'm posting is because I just wanted to contribute to the cover "controversy" where the same picture is used for more than one book. Here are two I just noticed today... I realized it because I have Charity Girl on my to-be-read pile and I saw this other book, Bespelling Jane Austen, and thought it was the same book at first...


   


Does it not look like the exact same stock image but on the newer book the chin is tilted up and to the left a little and then they added some stuff to it? They also moved the iris on her right eye a little bit. It looks the same to me... just thought it was interesting! What do you think?

Totally! I hate when they do that. Good catch.

Yep, those are definitely the same picture! That's so annoying. Come on, be original!

Yes, they are the same! So many books use the same cover art that it gets a bit annoying. There is one blogger who does a feature on similar covers whenever she comes across one!

It looks the same to me. I wish they'd use a little originality when designing covers.

They definitely look like the same image to me, although the covers feel quite different. I prefer the first one by far!
