Favorite Cover of the Week

This week I chose to go with Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld, the hardback cover.

From the first moment that I saw this cover I was drawn to it.  Every time I walked by it I had to stop and ask myself if I should just buy it, which I eventually did.  I've seen other covers with similar styles, but for me they just fall short of the beauty and artistry of this one.

It really saddened me that they changed the cover for the paperback by putting a face on it, and I'm equally disappointed that they did the same thing with the sequel.  These new covers are okay, but I really loved the old one. 

At least I always have the hardcover on my shelf to stare at.  Now I just need to read

The new cover:
