Similar Covers: Hands (Part 4)

I’ve been sick for the better part of a week (I feel better now), which is why I haven’t posted anything since my last “similar covers” post. Here then is my last post about covers featuring hands (for now at least).

There are lots of covers that feature hands holding something (see these lookalikes and these lookalikes, for example), so here’s a trio of pale covers with women’s hands holding pale objects (eggs or potatoes). The books are: A Reckless Moon by Dianne Warren, The Kitchen Congregation: A Daughter’s Story of Wives and Women Friends by Nora Seton and Unravelling by Elizabeth Graver. (You may remember that another one of Graver’s books was featured in this exact match post.)

Have you seen any others like these?


  1. I hope you're better soon!

    It's interesting that the covers are all sepia, too.

  2. I hope you're feeling better soon so you can bring more of these fun posts!

  3. Avis hope you are feeling better.

    I haven't seen any covers like that until now.

    I love when you do this.

  4. Get well soon! The cover of A Reckless Moon is really beautiful.


  5. Hope you're feeling better!! *passes some tea* take care! :-)

  6. Gee, what's with the hands. It's like they're all over the place lol! However, it's neat to have someone actually point it out because otherwise I probably would have been ignorant of it.

    Feel better soon!

  7. Even the coloring is alike.

  8. Thanks, everybody, for your well wishes. I'm pretty much back to normal now.

    Tiina, that one is my favourite of these three!

    Marie, thanks for the virtual tea!

    Lilly, I've found dozens of covers with hands holding something on them!

  9. Sorry to hear you were sick; I hope you're feeling a lot better by now!
    These covers lookalikes are fascinating! 3 different images, and yet so similar. I think the first one is my favorite.

  10. Kay, I hope you're feeling better too!

    Tea, odd and yet also oddly common (to find lookalike covers, I mean).
