Jamrach’s Menagerie by Carol Birch – Design Deja Vu


Just an observation while reading about the runners-up for the 2011 Booker Prize (congratulations Julian Barnes) – is it just me, or does the paperback version of Carol Birch’s book Jamrach’s Menagerie bear an uncanny resemblance to David Mitchell’s Cloud Atlas?

I suppose there are trends in cover design and only so many combinations of colors and layouts and shapes etcetera – but these do seem awfully close, to me. Anybody else notice that?
