Moments ago John Green revealed the cover to his upcoming novel The Fault in Our Stars on his tumblr. The highly anticipated release will be coming out in the U.S. on the 10th January 2012 and all pre-orders will be signed as Green is signing all 150,000 copies in the first printing. Check the cover out below, complete with a very nice blurb from Jodi Picoult who described The Fault in Our Stars as “Electric…filled with staccato bursts of humor and tragedy.” The cover was designed by Rodrigo Corral, who also designed the cover for Jay-Z’s Decoded, Jeffrey Eugenides’ The Marriage Plot and Super Sad True Love Story by Gary Shteyngart.
Secondly, Penguin have launched the Abundance of Covers contest, a competition to design the new cover for Green’s second novel, An Abundance of Katherines. The competition ends on the 21st November 2011 and you can read the full rules here on the Penguin website.
What do you think of the cover? Will you be taking part in the competition? Let us know in the comments!
