I wish I could read this book every day for the rest of my life.
asdkl i have not seen this cover their poses are perfect
Those covers make me want to go out and buy the entire Chrestomanci series again, because the covers on the editions I have are so rubbish by comparision. They’re all absolutely perfect.
I have never seen this cover before, but it looks lovely. Mine just has a unicorn on the cover…
(Which is kind of silly, but I kind of like how they’ve put such relatively minor occurrences on the covers of the three volume set, because they look pretty and, really, trying to capture two Chrestomanci books on one paperback cover is just not even worth failing at…)
Also, I’ve gotten to Conrad’s Fate now! I haven’t read it in forever, so it’s time to see what all this Christopher/Conrad fuss is about… =]
I don’t have this cover either! Mine is this one:
I love the new covers though (mostly because I like curly writing). I want to buy them all again! Except the new Witch Week cover is red and orange but the old one I’ve always read is pink/green/blue and the intermediate cover series (that matches my Conrad) is pinkish-purple and WHY WOULD YOU MAKE THE NEW ONE RED?? D: I can’t be the only person in the world who attaches colours to stories? Maybe it’s a synaesthesia thing.
I’ve got some of every kind, and the shiny ones are really not right. My Witch Week is grey, as well as some of the others, with drawings in the middle…
That’s just wrong! A book cover should be colourfull, even if sometimes it’s the wrong colour. The curly writing ones are perfect, because the writing and the drawings stand out and you can feel them while reading…
I never really got the point of this particular set of covers, since they’re just like that other set, except with half the space taken up by that boring grayish archway that isn’t even in any way relevant to the book…?
(This Witch Week cover actually looks a bit like the US cover of the first Harry Potter book… in which I also don’t really see how the random archway fits into anything at all. So, umm, yeah, Iri pretty much disapproves of random archways being used in book covers.)
And yes, I think these new covers with the big curly text and that art style and the pretty colors fit the books really, really well. If I ever buy a second set of Chrestomanci books, it will probably be these.
The new covers are probably the best, though I will always love this set!
Partly because they were the set I grew up reading but mostly because Chrestomanci looks so incredibly smug. And the fact that the cover opens to reveal MOAR Chrestomanci! :D (Who is apparently eight feet tall or wearing stilts, idk).
My favourite thing about all this…
I don’t remember book titles (or authors) very well. I was looking at these books thinking “Who is this Dianna Wynne Jones? Should I read some of her stuff?” and then when I saw the very bottom cover I realised that I really really used to like her in Primary School…
