This week it's the turn of one my favourite ever books. Seriously. If you haven't read it, then you should! It's got some of the most imaginative use of language I've ever read. Anyway, enough love for the insides, lets look at the covers of The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde, the first in the Thursday Next series...
|UK Paperback Issue 1|
|UK Paperback Issue 2|
The top right is the copy I have (although very worn by now). It's simple and the bright colours stood out on shelf which is one of the reasons I picked it up initially. The new UK cover is even bright with so many colours on Thursday's car as it crashes through the cover of the book. This is just too much for me personally. The US hard cover - I hate! It's so boring and dull - I don't think its interesting at all. The US paperback is my favourite - I like the lock and key motive on the book and it's very striking. Definitely my favourite cover.
What do you think? Which cover do you like and why?
