Lakeside Tree - Copycat Cover

Becoming a bit of a habit this, spotting a duplicate cover as I prepare the new reviews. The tree was on the trade paperback version of The Calling of the Grave but was obscured more by the writing. Why We Die is from 2006 and is OOP but cheap on Kindle and I'm not sure where it's set. Whereas, from the review(s), The Calling of the Grave seems set mostly near Dartmoor. I'm sure that tree has graced more covers than these two...

Oh, very good spot, Karen!

While both books use the same image, it's good to see that the covers aren't really alike and that something different has been done with each of them. Unlike a post I saw the other day where 3 book covers had used the same image and were all pretty much the same!

I considered your question to be a bit of a challenge... Check out my latest post for my answer: Similar Covers: Lone Tree.

Note that I cheated a bit to answer your question, as I used TinEye to find the other covers!

You'd think picture libraries would let the publishers know an image has already been used for the same kind of book.

(or maybe picture researchers should ask...)

I think that it's pretty pathetic to have to "steal" someone's book cover. Can't they be copyrighted like books are? Just sayin........
