Shrinking Violet by Danielle Joseph
Abreva ad from Glamour magazine

Another unexpected one! It appears the sweater is blue in the magazine ad while the book cover is purple. The model's eyes are the same color in both, just a difference in saturation. While the image works perfectly well for both, it's the book cover for me hands down, so much more simple!

Which is your favorite?

Thanks to Melissa Walker and the Ravenous Reader for sharing this one with me!

  1. The Shrinking Violet one is my favorite. I don't want to think of the cover as a cold sore ad. Now it will be in my head when I look at the cover. Not a pleasant thought.

  4. The book clearly is the best one!

    I notice they made some work around the eyes, too!

  5. Count me in for the book cover too. The girl in the cold sore ad actually looks like she's been squashed a little...!

  8. It's interesting how they added or didn't remove the wrinkles from the cold sore ad. I'm guessing they're aiming that one at an older demographic.

    I don't know how you spot these! I'm so impressed!

  10. The book cover looks nicer, mostly because of the colors. Also the Abreva advertisement has a much older looking woman on it? I guess her eye wrinkles (I love eye wrinkles FYI) had to get smoothed out for a YA book!

  11. I like Shrinking Violet. The other one looks like the pictures was stretched in a weird way.

  13. Back in March, I did a post on this. I was looking through a magazine and there was that cold sore ad! I thought it was hilarous. If anyone wants to see the magazine version, here's a link: http://wwwsimplymegan.blogspot.com/2009/03/look-familiar.html

  14. That is too funny! I like the violet one but not because one is a cold sore ad, but because the over all effect is more integrated.

  16. It isn't exactly the same, but the paperback cover of AT FACE VALUE by Emily Franklin look similar to these. Minus the eyes and the playfulness.

  18. I love the book cover. I think it's so sweet and pretty. The ad doesn't take away from that for me. It actually made me like the ad more!

  21. I find it funny that the cold sore ad eyes have wrinkles. book cover for me!

  22. Love the Shrinking Violet cover. These are so funny--I saw the Abreva ad a while ago, and just cracked up. Don't you think someone would notice repeating photos?

  23. Ohh I love the first one.. :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. :) How did you find this one?? :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. Cool find!

    I can't tell if those were wrinkles that got taken out or two different poses, one where she was squishing her face a little.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I saw this one too and meant to tell you but then I couldn't remember what the ad was for...LOL But yes, the book is my favorite.
