There's a little voting thing going on right now at Teen Fire, and when I went to cast my vote, I noticed a little something. Teen Fire is asking people to vote for their favorite of 4 covers for the upcoming book Magic Most Foul. At first, I was drawn to the first cover, though for some reason, it seemed really familiar to me. Then I had it -- that's because it was -- I own a book that uses the same stock photo, though to much different effect. Check it out:
So who did it better?
Also, if you're interested, here are all of the covers up for voting in the Magic Most Foul cover contest. I personally chose number 3.
Last week on FFO: You guys gave excellent feedback on the various, slightly-altered covers of Nightshade. Really, well done. You showed exactly why we have these discussions, and why cover design is important and exacting, right down to the particulars. The common US cover that we're all familiar with did win, but many of you praised the font on the middle purplier cover, and I have to agree with you.
But apparently, the designers got it right. For an American audience, at least. :)
