Lost in Translation Cover Comparison: The Wedding in White

Topic: Lost in Translation Cover Comparison: The Wedding in White

Since I started my “Lost In Translation” series of blog posts, I thought it would be interesting to continue this companion piece started during the A to Z Blog Challenge. This post will focus on the different covers between the original novel version and the manga version of “The Wedding In White” by Diana Palmer.

Manga Cover has the following characteristics:

*Setting is outdoors
*The couple is in the foreground with a fruit bearing tree just behind them
*The man is wearing a tuxedo in white
*The woman is wearing a white wedding gown with a huge bow on her arm
*The man is carrying the women with her arms around his head and not his neck
*The woman is holding an eye patch in her hand
*There is a ranch house is in the background

Observation: This version is trying to covey the characters and the wedding between them. It also hints to an important piece of the plot, which is represented by the positioning of the women’s arms and the eye patch in her hand.

Novel Cover has the following characteristics:

*Setting is outdoors
*A bouquet of roses sits on the ground in the foreground
*The couple is standing in a dancing pose more in the background than the foreground
*The man is wearing a tuxedo in black
*The woman is wearing a white wedding gown without bows
*There is a ranch house near the background with trees and mountains in the distance

Observation: It is harder to understand what it is trying to covey with this version. There does not seem to be any hints of the plot except for the couple in wedding clothes and the location of the story.

My next Lost In Translation post will review and compare the original The Wedding in White novel and the manga version.
