While doing my research for yesterday’s post, Friday Fun Facts: 1984, I discovered some wonderful covers that have been done for the book over the years. Here are some, hope you enjoy them – let me know which one is your favorite.

These are all cool but I think I like the second one best.
The blood splattered camera is pretty powerful.
Yes, “powerful” is the word that came to my mind as well.
I like the Signet cover with everyone in their jumpsuits. These all beat my boring white cover!
That is a very thought provoking cover.
I love the 2nd cover and also the 7th. They’r all great though.
I think the Penguin Modern Classics cover and the very first cover are my favorites. I’m not sure why though!
