COVER LOVE: Ellen Hopkins’s Crank Trilogy Gets a Makeover

I’m kind of excited about this. Ellen Hopkins’s covers are so iconic, especially the Crank Trilogy. Check them out:

I mean, stunning, right? But today I discovered the trilogy is being re-launched with new covers, and in a trim paperback edition:

In the past I’ve been disappointed by cover redesigns. Recently there have been a couple that I felt were vastly inferior to the original. But this cover rethink really works for me. I love how they’ve kept the same color scheme. I like the taglines. And of course it’s entirely appropriate that Ellen Hopkins join the ranks of authors whose names are at least as big as their titles. I think this redesign maintains the character of the originals while updating them and making them feel very current and modern. Initially I was a little shocked at this new look, but the more I study it, the more it works for me. This is everything a cover redesign should be.

The new look trilogy comes out this August.
