Covering Covers: Uglies/Pretties/Specials

I saw these new covers for Scott Westerfeld's popular trilogy today and I must say I like the new look.

For comparison, here are the old covers.

The old covers aren't bad per se but they really give off a chick-lit vibe. Nothing is wrong with the covers themselves, I just don't know if they are really indicative of the story inside. When are they ever? I just happen to like the new covers more.

The new covers are more complex which in this case I support. The bright colors attract the eye and get you to examine the smaller pictures in greater detail. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to find the artist responsible for the new covers which is something I always try to hightlight. If you know who it is, please let me know in the comments.


  1. Definitely a fan of the new ones over the old. I completely thought these were the next Twilight or something because of the old covers.

  2. Excellent covers this is exactly what I was looking for because I'm studying publicity design and it could be perfect for me in order to leave my professor with the mouth open.
