Again, similar covers...

Here are three more books with similar covers... As soon as I saw the cover to The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau Banks by E. Lockhart, it reminded me of The Sealed Letter by Emma Donoghue. And then, just as I was about to blog about those two lookalikes, I saw the cover of The Rosetti Letter by Christi Phillips on Danielle’s blog, A Work in Progress. Has anyone else come across other books with a sealed letter on the cover?

Edited on March 3 to add:

The Sealed Letter actually has another cover that uses the exact same letter as on the cover to The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau Banks. Alicia at The LibrariYAn posted about these two covers. (And by the way, it would appear she’s right: The Disreputable History was published before The Sealed Letter, at least according to Amazon.)

I found a fourth book with a sealed letter on the cover: A Memoir of Friendship: The Letters Between Carol Shields and Blanche Howard edited by Blanche Howard and Allison Howard.


  1. Nice one! I've always wanted to be able to put wax seals on stuff, they are just so pretty!

  2. wow...thats amazing...i wonder how many others are out there.

    wax seals are fun to play with.

  3. I love these posts. I always see similar covers at the bookstore but can never rememeber the titles to share here.

  4. Those covers are similar - I haven't notice any other covers like that, but I'm not as observant as you and Alea are.

  5. Those are really similar...crazy!

  6. Thanks, everyone, for your comments! As Alea knows, I've become totally obsessed with tracking down similar covers!
