Ein weiterer Schritt zur Ergreifung der Weltherrschaft!!! :P

Was macht man, wenn die alten Klassiker nicht mehr so gut bei den Teens ankommen???
Man verpasst ihnen den "Twilight-Style"!!

Guckste hier:



Und simsalabim:




In den USA gibt es eine HarperTeen Edition bekannter Klassiker, darunter sind:
Sturmhöhe, Stolz&Vorurteil und Romeo&Julia.
Fällt euch etwas auf?
Genau, die Inspirationsquellen von Mrs. Meyer.
Alle sind neu im Buchcoverstyle der Twillight Bücher gehalten. Schlau schlau....auf den Zug mitaufzuspringen... aber wenn es die Teens zu lesen bringt, ist es gut!

"Let’s judge a couple books by their covers.


On one side, we have the best-selling “Twilight” books–which are instantly recognizable for their striking book jackets, designed by Gail Doobinin, placing white and blood-red images against black backgrounds.


On the other side, we have the new HarperTeen editions of “Wuthering Heights,” “Pride & Prejudice,” and “Romeo & Juliet,” which also place white and blood-red images against black backgrounds.


Even the type is similar–the “g” on the “Twilight” jacket has a twirling bottom, and so does the “J” on the “Romeo & Juliet” cover. And the l’s on both covers have knife-like shapes. And all the books in the HarperTeen series, like book two of the “Twilight” franchise, “New Moon,” feature flowers on the cover.


Coincidence?


Or is HarperTeen, an imprint of HarperCollins, trying to take a bite out of Little, Brown’s huge “Twilight” audience?


HarperCollins, which, like the Wall Street Journal, is owned by News Corp., said via email in response to questions about possible similarities between the HarperTeen series covers and the “Twilight” jackets that “The cover art is stock photography.”


Stephenie Meyer’s publicist at Little, Brown declined to comment.


The recently-published HarperTeen editions of classics also include quizzes and other extras at the end of each book.


The main text of each book remains unchanged, said the publisher. HarperTeen declined to provide sales figures for the series."


Es sieht aber auch irgendwie chic aus...
