The Book: The Uglies Trilogy by Scott Westerfeld
Now I have posted a covers wars on UGLIES before (see here) and the US won hands down. I hated the UK covers but they have been re-issued. Look at these stunning new covers.
I really like these: the cutouts, the font, the photos and especially the eye used in the same place each time. But they make me think the books are going to be spy novels. They look so James Bondish.
While they are so much better, for me, The USA covers still have it.
What about you?
I found out about these in a guest post by Kathryn McKenna, Children’s Marketing & Publicity Assistant for Simon and Schuster UK at The Booksmugglers – thanks!
