Onónion,

I hate to say this, but try to find that "Tales From the Perilous Realm" Deluxe edition for less. You will have your work cut out for you. It must have had a very small print run.

Here's the link again for the preview box:

I get the feeling that consistency is not a high priority for any publisher, unless the new book is part of a multi-volume set.

I also think that the designer here is not the same person as on the others (just a hunch) and they of course want to show some individuality and contribution to the design.

Plus now when they come out with a matching style, people like us will be "forced" to collect that as well because they look so much nicer together on the shelf!

HarperCollins has shared some of the though process that went behind the design of the dustjacket for Beowulf - I found it interesting!

http://harpercollins-design.tumblr.co ... g-beowulf-by-ben-gardiner

It’s a balancing act designing a cover to illustrate J.R.R. Tolkien’s literary texts; simultaneously giving his fantastical works a stand out and distinctive look, whilst also paying respect to the genre and decades of publishing that have gone before.

Cool! Sounds like that NPC algorithm was (a) advanced and (b) broken.
