Cover of GO SET A WATCHMAN, Harper Lee’s New Novel

Editor’s Note: The publisher has since made a statment that this is a UK placeholder cover, not the final cover. We’ll let you know (of course) when the final one is released!

What do you think? Reminds me of the cover of The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling- another highly-anticipated (though obviously not AS anticipated) adult novel with a cover that’s mostly text, and a big author name. No flashy graphics needed?

H/t to Paul Bogaards, PR at Knopf, for catching it (and tweeting it) first.
