I'm a sucker for black and white, so I really love the first illustration much more than the finals, but they're all really nice :) Kudos!

same here :( . I would have loved to do the entire series in silhouettes. Thanks again !

Anyone except for certain someone from Penguin would agree that your first attempt was way better than the finals.
The finals are nice..... but you know what I mean! : )

Thank you !
@Kundu ..to be honest it was the marketing team that thought the cover wouldn't work

I love the style of these covers, Priya. And I agree with all the comments -- the two-tone cover is spectacular!
