Different countries often put completely different covers on the same book, and many countries have very distinct styles which simply would not work in other parts of the world: we always enjoy comparing these, and asking ourselves what the covers say about the people they are aimed at around the world.
The O'Brien Press cover gallery shows a selection of covers from our books in translation.
They are not all here, but the ones that are show that different countries take very different approaches to the books!
We have also put in some old covers of our own which have changed over the years, for whatever reason.
Feel free to browse and see which covers you like best.
