COVER WIN! “The Watchmaker of Filigree Street”


I was gonna tell you “YAY! An Italian NOT FAIL cover!”… but then I checked, and they simply didn’t try. The Italian publisher used the same cover as the original English edition. Which: progress? But also: shows a few things, huh… Italian cover designs are so behind still. Sigh.
But really! This is an amazing cover! Catches the eye, looks antique, it’s perfect for a book set in Victorian England. I might very well read it.

Also, Italian publishers REALLY have to let go of the egotism. Was it necessary to slap the publishing house’s logo in there? And to write on the cover “Bompiani novel”? STOP. THAT.
