“Eclipse” book with new cover available for pre-order
This week I got a tip from the Thinking of Rob blog: a newly-designed “Eclipse” paperback is available for pre-order online. The official release date for the title is May 25, but the volume is already on sale for pre-order on Amazon.com (and does not yet appear to be on sale for pre-order at Borders’)—the cover price is $12.99, but Amazon.com is selling it for just under $9.00.
As with the earlier books, the alternative cover features the actors in the movies. In this case, we see a flowing-haired Bella flanked by a protective-looking Edward and Jacob. All characters are facing forward, though both Edward and Jacob’s faces are partially obscured. The image of clouds surrounding the eclipsed sun is shown on the bottom half of the space.
Each of the original books was released with the now-famous red-on black icons—pale, delicate hands holding the apple on the cover of “Twilight”, the red and white parrot tulip that ambiguously drips blood on the on the front of “New Moon”, the single red ribbon cascading down cover of “Eclipse”, and the white queen dominating a red pawn on the front of “Breaking Dawn”.
Between paperback and hard cover, regular print and large print, and pressings to supply volume to a demanding market, “Eclipse” has been printed at least 16 times. If paper’s not your thing, it is available on Audio CD, audiobook file, and in digital formats, such as Kindle.
