Did they change the cover to The Beautiful Ones book?

The featured thread is locked but I noticed that the cover for the Kindle version was changed. Now the picture is color corrected and the title is in purple.

For reference, here's the original one still shown under hardback

And the hate I received for performing the same colour-correction two months ago... smile

Looks like it's confirmed. The hardback listing was updated with a high resolution copy of the new cover confused

Well, it's good to know what my copy I ordered already is going to look like! I'm telling you people, I still just can't get over that men's velour shirt from the 70's on him. Some things just take you back...

Sort of reminds me when we visited Graceland, and you see Elvis' kitchen. There were these kitchen cannisters sitting on the counter done in mushrooms, orange & green & brown. Couldn't decide why they looked so familiar, then it came to me; that a a good friend of mine had the same ones in her mom's kitchen. Talk about time warp.

Now if I could just find a pair of wooden clog leather sandals again, Ha.

I hope they did. It annoyed me they hadn't cropped the left hand edge in the picture.

But I'm sure someone will have issue with this being altered from the original 😆
