|US Bulgarian German|
ALL OUR YESTERDAYS by Cristin Terrill was one of my favourite 2013 debut novels. A fabulously written time travel story with ingeniously connected present and future plots with Em, Finn and James.
I can't say I'm a fan of the US cover, but I'm not aversed to it either. We see a city skyline, water, cooblestone all held in greyish-blue tones. As time is the most important commodity in this story it only makes sense to put such a prominent and glowing, orange clock in the focus of its US cover, right?
I needed a second to identify what's on the Bulgarian cover. Then I realized that it is meant to symbolize the dark cell that Em and Finn find themselves in at the beginning of ALL OUR YESTERDAYS. A few rays of light shining into the dark room. The different time elements and cogs set the heart into motion ( = Em & Finn's love story I guess). Pretty clever, but I'm not into the font and the design of the many different clocks and cogs in the right corner and center of the cover.
This time, I can honestly say that the German cover is my favourite. It looks sleek, modern and stylish. We see the two versions of Em who are fighting time and each other. I assume the blue circle in the cover's center stands for time, which isn't a constant factor anymore but unravelling. Cool color scheme!
