Eureka!

After almost two years of writing this blog, we have finally come to a clear understanding of the difference between US and UK covers. To make a cover ready for the UK market, simply add chips. :-)

(The US version has the tiny, tiny fish.)

Gah! Would it have been so difficult to take a picture of an actual package of fish and chips instead of Photoshopping it?

one of the few instances in which, as far as i'm concerned, the US version takes the cake.

UK cover hands down.

Oh yes, definitely the UK cover. The US one is just too messy. The UK one has more of a foreboding about it So small a fish on such a large plate. To me that translates into less fish available. Point received in my brain.

Argh. Missed the point, sorry. US (not UK) cover hands down. Apologies... its a Friday.

um, so just to clarify, the US version is the one with the teeeeeeeny little fishy on the big plate, right?
