When I first saw the cover for The Radleys by Matt Haig, I thought, Oh great, another vampire novel with red, white and black color scheme. How original.
But then I looked a little more closely at the cover art, and came to the conclusion that it’s definitely more sinister than that other vampire series. That other series had beautiful, enigmatic covers. The dripping blood on The Radleys pretty much guarantees that someone’s going to die a horrible death.
Here’s the American cover:
The U.K. has two versions — one adult and one YA — although the content is exactly the same.
The French version is a bit different, though it keeps the white picket fence theme:
The German edition takes a completely different approach:
And finally, we have the Australian version, which, except for the language, has pretty much the same cover as the Danish edition. This is my least favorite, as it reminds me of that scene in the movie “There’s Somthing About Mary” … (I know, ewwww!)
