Look-Alike Book Covers Confuse Me!

26 Sep

I just took a double-take when I saw the cover of the just-published book, Burial Rites, by Hannah Kent. To me, it bore more than a passing resemblance to J.K. Rowling’s recent book, The Cuckoo’s Calling. And then I just got plain confused. There was so much publicity surrounding Rowling’s book, it’s hard to imagine that a publisher would have been unaware of what its cover looked like. Why make a book cover resemble another so closely?  Or is that the point? Whatever. I think there must be enough imagination to go around in the book industry. What do you think?
