I recently heard about the changing of Cindy Pon's covers. There is no doubt in my mind that they have been whitewashed, an attempt to appeal to a broader market. The question is: why? Why did those in charge feel the need to take the beautiful hardback cover of Silver Phoenix and change it when they decided to sell the paperback? I think most people would agree the harback for Silver Phoenix is stunning. Why fix something that isn't broken? The sad thing is, this isn't the first time this has happened. I imagine most people will remember the "Liar" controversy.
This really saddens me.
Below are a couple of links where I learnt of the changes. Check them out. They're amazing:
