Similar Covers: Written on the Face

First a threesome foursome of covers where the book title obscures the face behind it:

Next, a foursome fivesome (!) of covers featuring closeups of (mostly) closed eyes:

Interestingly, the librarians at Stacked have featured two of these covers (Never Let Me Go and My Not-So-Still Life) with other lookalikes: check out Dystopia Double Take and Double Take: A Wink and a Nudge. Do you know of any others that would match these sets?

Edited to add:

I just added a fourth cover to the first set, The Book of Blood and Shadow, which I spotted over at The Book Smugglers. It looks so much like the cover for A Friend of the Family, except the words really are written on her face!

I also added a fifth cover to the second set, The Museum of Innocence, which is definitely my favourite of these five (and the only one I’m tempted to pick up based on the cover).


  1. The eyes are kinda freaky...

    You are so good at spotting similar covers!

  2. All of those eyes are so strange...I wonder what if they think they make the covers more attractive?

  3. I don't like the writing on the face - I hope it doesn't become a trend.

  4. I find all these covers so striking for some reason.

  5. It's amazing how many variations of the same cover are used. Very cool feature.
