Her Fearful Symmetry

Simon & Schuster tweeted yesterday that the cover for Audrey Niffenegger's second novel Her Fearful Symmetry is final; sorry but I couldn't find a larger image other than this one, from the S&S site. The book is set in and around Highgate Cemetery and there's a ghost or two, so this skyward view from a creepy place works real nicely, I think.

I couldn't help but think almost immediately of Jen Wang's design for In The Woods; anyone know if she's involved with the Niffenegger book?

Very excited to hear she has a new novel on the way. I thought after the Three Incestuous Sisters that she had abandoned novelature for good. The design does strike me as kind of tired (Seriously, wasn't this idea just recently used on a movie poster?), but I'm not dissuaded at all.
