Now that my copy of the Spanish translation of Umberto Eco latest novel has arrived, I thought I'd post three pictures of that and the Italian original side-by-side for readers here to judge which is the better-made (or at least covered) edition.
For those that can read it, the Spanish edition has on its back a description of the book's contents, while the Italian is suitably black (the description there is inside one of the flaps).
Enjoy the MacBook in the background?
In addition to the Eco, I also received my long-awaited copy of Javier Negrete's latest novel, Atlántida, which so far is a fairly good book set in near-future times dealing with a possible landmark discovery of the "real Atlantis." As with the Eco, I will review it in the near future.
So, besides choosing which Eco edition looks best, what do you make of the Negrete cover?
