Last week author Libby Cone, who also blogs at The New Podler Review of Books, pointed out two lookalike covers in a comment on my blog (one of which I’m sure most of you are familiar with): The Jewel of Medina by Sherry Jones and Jezebel: The Untold Story of the Bible’s Harlot Queen by Lesley Hazleton. It’s interesting how different these two covers look, given they both use the same image!
According to Amazon, The Jewel of Medina was published first (in 2008 by Beaufort Books); this paperback version of Jezebel was reprinted by Doubleday in 2009. This is one instance where it’s hard to believe the person who designed the second cover wasn’t aware that image had already been used!
I was sure I’d already seen a post somewhere about a Jewel of Medina lookalike cover, but I can’t find it. Has anyone else seen one?
