THE CATCHER IN THE RYE: 24 Foreign Covers

As a kid I was always intrigued by family members reading translated books: American classics in Spanish; Latin American works in English. I was most curious to see how the title translated and the different cover images, which is something I never grew out of. And now thanks to the Internet, seeing book covers for works translated in different countries is usually just an easy search away. Which brings me to The Catcher in the Rye: a book with an iconic cover.

The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger
To be honest I couldn’t think of a different cover so when Kelly suggested a cover round-up I was all over finding the foreign covers for The Catcher in the Rye.
