You may THINK you know what the cover for CREWEL by Gennifer Albin looks like, but you have no idea. None.
BECAUSE THERE'S BEEN A RE-DESIGN!!!
|The original cover to CREWEL|
And, honestly? It works. I wondered how ALTERED could match the tone of CREWEL. CREWEL is also one of those covers that's not as accessible for people looking to pick it up right off the shelf, though it makes sense after you read it!
The new format stands out more. While some elements are generic, the shape and texture is unique. It's very current and "in," so a lot of teens will pick this up. I would also be able to tell what series this was a part of anytime I saw a new cover even if you blanked out all the important information. It's very distinctive!
The only real issue?
I HATE when my books don't match. I'm so OCD...
I do like the new design, though, so...
Ready to see?
Here's the re-design for the first book in the series, CREWEL:
