Funky Cover Friday

I just finished reading The Walled City by Ryan Gaudin the other day and I wanted to share with you an older cover (not the actual cover), because, personally I prefer the previous cover to the one that is going to be printed. Below is the old cover, one that I feel captures the tone of the story: ominous in the red, tragic in the dark colours and the sad androgynous face, and the looming symbol of the Brotherhood drug gang. The contract of the light and dark on this cover signifies so clearly the stark difference between the Walled City and the world beyond the walls. I wish this cover had been kept. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Below you can see the new cover…no comment…. *shifty eyes*…..
