Help Choose a Book Cover for Elizabeth Gilbert

Penguin Group (USA)’s Viking imprint will publish Elizabeth Gilbert‘s new novel, The Signature of All Things, on October 1st.

Before the release date hits, the book needs “a face.” To resolve this matter, Gilbert and her publisher invite the public to vote for their preferred cover design. Visit Gilbert’s Facebook page to pick one of three choices. Please note that a deadline has been set for March 24th.

Here’s more from Gilbert’s announcement: “We are turning to you for this decision because, frankly, we were unable to agree amongst ourselves. (Anyone who has ever worked in publishing knows what I’m talking about here: Disputes over book covers can get REALLY INTENSE.) I got so tired of debating over ‘what the reader wants’ that I decided instead to just try asking you guys directly.” The image embedded above features all three covers–which one would you choose?
