Picture This, Picture That: A Rural Affair by Catherine Alliott

Welcome to my new feature, Picture This, Picture That! This is where I will be looking at book covers, and comparing two covers for the same book, and finding out which one we all like best!

First up is Catherine Alliott's 2011 release A Rural Affair. The original cover seen on the left was a little dowdy and dull for my liking, but I can't say the new cover (right) is a vast improvement!I think the cover is a little obscure, and the colours aren't overly inspiring. I can't say the new or old cover would make me pick up the book myself, but which of the covers do you prefer? Let me know in the comments!


  1. Definitely the first cover!

  2. I agree - the first is more eye-catching.

  3. I like the new one better.

  4. Ooh, two each so far.

    I'm going to go for the first one as I usually go for covers with cartoony people.
