Here we go again with a threesome of covers using the same image: Defiance by Carole Maso (first published in 1998), Cries of the Spirit: A Celebration of Women’s Spirituality edited by Marilyn Sewell (first published in 1991) and Decision and Destiny: Colette’s Destiny by DeVa Gantt (which just came out this year). Although all three use the same image, they are quite different. I think my favourite might actually be the most recent book, Decision and Destiny: Colette’s Destiny. I like the crispness of the top image and I’m a fan of split cover designs in general.
Okay, here’s the weird part: In writing this post, I noticed that Marilyn Sewell has edited another book with a very familiar cover, Claiming the Spirit Within: A Sourcebook of Women’s Poetry (first published in 1996). Coincidence? Or was the person who designed the cover for Defiance “inspired” by Sewell’s books? (Both were published before Defiance.)
