Copycat Covers: It Takes a Village

A new entry in our series about remarkably look-alike book fronts.



Buried in the Country, by Carola Dunn (Minotaur, 2016); and In a Dry Season, by Peter Robinson (Morrow, 1999). If you click on these images to enlarge them, you will see clearly that the front from In a Dry Season—Robinson’s 10th Alan Banks novel—uses the right-hand portion (only slight modified) of the same Jo Parsons/Getty Images stock photo that decorates the façade of Dunn’s latest “Cornish Mystery.”

Well, as long as the manuscripts aren’t identical …..
