The science of book jacket design is fascinating. Recently, while wandering a bookstore, my daughter found this book on the shelf:
We immediately ran over to the Twilight shelf to compare:
They’re similar, but not identical, so they’re not based on the same stock photo–although they may well be part of the same stock photo set.
Nonetheless, the question remains: is HarperOne, publisher of the Lewis book, attempting to attract a Twilight market by using a similar image? It’s pretty blatant. You’d have to have been living in a cave the past few years not to notice the similarity.
What do you think?
