In the Country of Men

From the top: US hardcover, UK hardcover, UK paperback.

Dread, loss, loneliness and terror in Libya, viewed through the eyes of a 9-year-old boy. All three of these covers project that pretty well. And what's that? A cover with feet that actually makes sense?!?!?!?

Does anyone else feel like all the typography is rather so-so? I don't know – I'm just not feeling it. The second, very handwritten one has potential to me, but it feels a little too positive: magical-imaginary-world positive.

Second UK version is best. But I agree with j... imagery choice needs to be reconsidered

What a bizarre mix of covers for the one book.
