Last month I wrote about Christopher Morley’s novella Parnassus on Wheels, and shared about how much I enjoyed it.
I would definitely *not* have picked it up based on the cover – a very dull looking and unappealing thing – but then I came across a much prettier cover for the book. And that got me wondering what other covers this title had had over the years. The answer? A lot. Here’s just a sampling of what can happen when a book goes out of copyright and anyone can reprint it:
All those choices, and I’m not completely sure which is my favorite, although I did narrow it down to these three. And if you absolutely forced me to just pick one, it’d probably be the blue one on the far right.
Which one is your favorite? And can anyone tell what is going on in the middle row’s far left cover? I can’t figure it out. Are they people?
