US vs. UK: Graceling by Kristin Cashore

Graceling (Graceling Realm, #1)  Graceling (Graceling Realm, #1)
What I find particularly unique about this set of covers is someone tried to make them look alike. There are some cases where covers of the same book are so different it seems like they must be two different books, but with Graceling, there are clearly similarities. For example, the author's name is in the same font, although it changed sizes, the title's fonts—while different—share the same elegant style, and both covers kept the title to the same gold shade.

Now, the backdrop of these covers may only keep swords in common, but I still think as a whole, these two are look pretty alike. Out of the two of them, UK's shadowy girl-figure pose is definitely my favorite.

Your thoughts?

    1. I haven't read Graceling, but judging from that cover, she must be a pretty awesome heroine! (:
