Cover Judge: The Great Library Series by Rachel Caine (US vs. UK)

I wanted to do something a little different today because I just happened to see the beautiful UK cover for Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine so I thought I’d do one of those vs. posts pitting her US covers against her UK ones. I really like her US hardbacks but after seeing the paperbacks versions for UK, I think I may have to change my mind. The US covers just seems kind of boring and plain even though I do like the color schemes and I do notice that after I stare at them for a while I can see some details pop out like the creature at the top of the US version of Ink and Bone. As much as I like the butterfly layout, I do think the US one is better.

If I had at least one copy of the UK versions, it would be Paper and Fire. Put a crow or a raven on anything and I want it, I’m totally one of those people. But then again, I’m basically the same way with dragons and, of course, there are dragons on the US versions… as you can tell I’m very indecisive. I really like both covers. I think I could own both one this one.

Ash and Quill are the bird versions for the US…so I’m more in love with this cover than I am the UK one. I do like the lion but I feel this one is more of a bad Photoshop cover in order for it to match the other two. I feel bad saying that though. I also really like the contrast of silver and red on the US version. I choose the US version over the UK on this one.
