The Redesign of the Julie & Julia Book Cover
Julie & Julia — and here we're talking about the book (buy at Amazon) — has gone from a classy design to, in its new tie-in form, basically a poster for the movie. In fact, the redesigned book cover looks exactly like the poster for the movie. At least they didn't use the silly egg-tastic teaser poster as inspiration. (Both posters are after the jump.)
It's a little misleading for the book to rebrand itself as the story of the movie. Anyone looking for narrative time-shifts to 1940s and 1950s-era France will be sorely disappointed. And why kill the adorably numeric subhead?
