Similar Covers: Two Faces

I have six similar covers for you this week (for five different books), all of which feature two cropped faces, close together. The books are:

I included both covers of House Rules in part for the sake of symmetry, but also because I feel like the mood of each cover is very different, despite the fact that both use the same image. (I much prefer the black-and-white version.)

Interestingly enough, after I’d prepared this post last week, I noticed that Jacket Whys had featured six other covers similar to these in a post called “Skin.”

*I’m hoping to meet Emma Donoghue at BEA later today when she will be signing copies of her latest book, Room.

    I kinda like the House Rules cover in color, I prefer that one over the others.

  4. An interesting thing to note on your particular set of face covers is that the type style and placement is similar as well!
