Favorite Cover Changes

Today's Top Ten Tuesday topic is favorite cover changes. This is not something I care about a whole lot. I have a few I think were a good idea, but not enough to write a whole post on. So, I'm going to take it back to my favorite book, Pride and Prejudice, and show you my favorite Pride and Prejudice covers. Lucky You.

Pride and Prejudice

I'm going to start with the copy I've read the most. I have read this over and over. It has the fewest typos and it feels like it's not about to fall apart. I'm looking at you, Barnes and Noble Classics.

P&P

This might be my favorite copy. This is the Annotated Pride and Prejudice. It has notes all the way through with information about things in the book that might be not completely clear to the modern reader. It's fascinating stuff.

P&P

This is the copy that Tom Hanks reads in You've Got Mail. Also, Colin Firth. Normally, I'm not a big fan of the movie cover, but Colin Firth.

This completely unlikely cover is from the era when Twilight was the biggest thing on the Earth. They remade a bunch of classics covers with the back white and red imagery. I guess in the hopes that kids would think these books are just like Twilight???

You might not be able to tell from this picture, but this book has a leather-like cover. It's bendy, but not like a paperback. We have gotten to the portion of the list where I'm just showing you covers I like, but maybe don't have personal experience with.

P&P

This one makes me giggle. It kind of looks like an Edward Gorey drawing. He's stepping on her skirt, and her head is on backwards. LOL!

P&P

I just really like the color on this one, honestly.

P&P

This is an interesting cover. It looks like it's been drawn by hand. It looks like a bullet journal page. Painted with paint dot markers.

P&P

I like the design of this one, but not the colors. But I've recently come to the realization that my taste in colors is sadly outdated. Sigh.

I guess that's only 9, but that's what I got. What are your favorite covers of your favorite books?
