This week's topic is:
A Green Cover
When I saw this week's topic was for a green cover, my first thought went to Jade City by Fonda Lee, one of the greenest covers I know. I hadn't looked at the various international editions of this book before, so it was really fun to see all the different covers that exist out there. There aren't a ton, but there's enough to have a good comparison. Let's check them out!
2017 US Hardcover | 2019 Spanish | 2018 Russian
2020 Turkish | 2022 Czech | 2019 Japanese
I really like the original US hardcover, but I have to say that the Russian and Japanese editions are really neat, too, and are covers I'd love to own. The Turkish edition is also really neat–maybe I should just say all of these covers are really well done, haha.
What cover(s) do you like the most?
