Foreign Cover Friday is a weekly meme hosted by The Reading Fever, where foreign covers of the books we know and love are spotlighted and discussed.
This week I chose:
Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
The covers above are the original covers for the book. The first one is the one that was used in UK, Australia and New Zealand. The second cover was used in US and Canada. I like the covers and I think they go very well with the title, but I also think that they are a bit too dark. I love the font!
The first cover is the French one and the second cover is the one that was used in Romania. The cover is nice, and I think it goes pretty well with the story, but the title that was used doesn’t really match.
French translation: 16 moons Romanian translation: The 16th moon
The first cover is the German cover and the second one is the Indonesian cover. They’re Ok, but they don’t captivate my attention in any special way. Especially the Indonesian one, that gives me the impression that it is a children’s book.
Indonesian translation: Beautiful Love
The cover on the right is the Serbian cover and the one on the left is the Portugese cover. I like the Portugese cover, with its purple background and the white tree. The serbian cover isn’t that great.
Serbian translation: Beautiful Creatures Portugese translation: Sixteen Moons
The ones above are the Catalan and Lithuanian covers. The first one has a resemblance to the US cover but like the US cover, it’s too dark. The Lithuanian cover is cute, I like the color of the background and how the 6 from 16 intertwines with the green swirl.
Catalan translation: Strange Creatures Lithuanian translation: 16 moons
The cover above is the Bulgarian cover. I like it and I think it goes well with the story.
Translation: Beautiful Creatures
And finally, this is the Dutch cover. It has a retro feel, but It’s not one of my favourites.
Well, I hope you liked it and tune in next week for another Foreign Cover Friday!
