Copycat Covers Continues

More than two years into his crusade to suss out and expose all the duplicate covers in bookdom, Rap Sheet and January Magazine editor J. Kingston Pierce is astonished that “vigilance and increasing negative publicity seems not to have deterred publishers in the least from trying to save a few rubles by using stock images -- even when those photographs and illustrations have already appeared on the covers of other books.”

This time out, Pierce brings us surprising visual duplications on books by top selling, debut and international authors, while letting us know that, with help from his readers, “my mission continues.”

The most recent Copycat Covers expose on The Rap Sheet can be found here. Find all of them archived here.
