As a piece of art, I really like these covers. The simplistic but intriguing images work well, and I like what the bird and dog represent. At the bottom where the title is written, there's even a tribute to To Kill A Mockingbird with the background, which naturally makes me like it that much more.
However, as much as I like the covers aesthetically, I don't feel they fit the book very well. Additionally, they wouldn't grab my attention very much if I saw them in a book store or something. Elegant, yes, but eye-catching, no.
Now here are the new covers:
(Sorry for the small size; I couldn't find a larger image.) Normally, I'm not much for faces on covers, but I LOVE these! The idea of scrawled writing on yearbook photos is very cool, and the dull-ish color scheme contrasted with brighter colors works beautifully. If I saw these, I would want to pick them up right away.
Which pair of covers do you like better?
