Reworking YA book covers

Print online magazine has an interesting discussion of young adult book covers in the US - eg the variations which have taken place on The Outsiders over the years (image above from this article). It's interesting to note that it's not just old favourites being re-covered, but one book mentioned has had five different covers over ten years. Read more here.
It's true to say, though, that covers can seriously influence a book's borrowability by our students - thus my cheerfulness at finding newer covers on Rosemary Sutcliff's novels (recently blogged).
