Is there anything worse than seeing a drop-dead beautiful cover only to find out that it is from another country? (Ok, yes, there are way worse things, but can we all agree that it is at least a little heartbreaking?) Like my Why, Publishers, Why?! posts this won't be a weekly feature, but every once in awhile I'm going to be focusing on beautiful covers I covet but can't have because I don't have the money I spend on books as it is, let alone books from other countries that come with international shipping charges (yet...I will be rich someday...right?).
Today's focus: Nevernight by Jay Kristoff
I don't hate the US cover for this book, but the UK edition is just so stunning. I seriously love everything about it: The white background, the dynamic and detailed bird (raven?), the font used for the tagline. Just everything. The font for the US title is interesting, and I like the wings, but in my mind bird > person on covers. Every time. (I'm definitely thinking about the original Raven Boys cover vs the PB edition here--that might have to be one of my Why, Publishers post).
As always, I'd love to hear from you! Which cover do you prefer?
