Judging a Book By Its Other Cover
The New York Times ran a great feature last weekend called "Book Covers That Got Away," which rounded up a handful of beautiful book covers that were ultimately shelved for other designs. For comparison's sake, we've paired the alternate covers with the ones that actually made it to the printer. Are these alternates better than what publishers actually went with?
