I recently came across the cover for Original Sins: A Novel of Slavery and Freedom by Peg Kingman and right away the butterfly looked familiar. I’m pretty sure it’s the same butterfly that appears on the cover of The Sister by Poppy Adams. What do you think?
I also had a small collection of covers featuring butterflies in jars: The End of Alice by A.M. Homes, The Heart Specialist by Claire Holden Rothman and Predators, Prey, and Other Kinfolk: Growing Up in Polygamy by Dorothy Allred Solomon. I love all three of these covers, but especially the last one—there’s something about the blurriness that really appeals to me.
I’ve posted about similar butterfly covers before, as have Alea at Pop Culture Junkie, Kay at The Infinite Shelf (whose post featured two of the same covers as above!) and, more recently, Jacket Whys.
Edited to add:
I found another blog post about similar butterfly covers (in jars!) at Euro Crime that features a book with a familiar cover image: Life Sentences by Laura Lippman, which I added above. It’s my new favourite cover of the lot!
