The OLDIES vs. The NEWBIES
Definitely an improvement. The first one has such a cheesy early 90s vibe.
Hm. Undecided. I like them both. Though I lean toward the original.
It's quite a change--though neither one screams out READ ME to me.
I think I actually prefer the illustrated cover. The Rainbow Rowell-illustrated cover trend has definitely taken YA by storm. :) In a good way.
I really like both of these, but I think I like the original just a bit more. Makes me think of Breakfast Club. :)
A perfect example of how font treatments can make such a huge difference. Original wins it for me. Can't imagine why they bothered to change it!
The first was simple and interesting, but I always thought it looked a little blah. While I don't love the new one either, their makeup definitely makes me think MERMAIDS!
Loved the original---simple design and gorgeous font. I think the new one has grown on me since I first saw it, it's pretty, but I still love the impact and originality of the first.
What do you think of these cover changes? Which do you prefer..oldies or newbies?
