GREAT NEWS on the Cover of Magic Under Glass!!!!!

From the Bloomsbury Kids website: “Bloomsbury is ceasing to supply copies of the US edition of *Magic Under Glass*. The jacket design has caused offense and we apologize for our mistake. Copies of the book with a new jacket design will be available shortly.”

And for those of us who are worrying about what the new cover might show, this sounds reassuring:

From Jaclyn Dolamore's blog-- "I've been speaking with Bloomsbury and have learned that they will be doing a new jacket for Magic Under Glass, with a model who will more closely reflect my own design, as seen in the book trailer."

Oh my gosh. Oh gosh. Cheers for Ari, and Susan, and Doret, and Colleen, and all the others who blogged so passionately about this. And thanks Bloomsbury, for doing the right thing. (please don't let it happen again).


    Interesting, since the Guardian just picked up the story -- worldwide attention might make one flinch a bit.

    Wow. Now I want to see what's next.

  2. Wow, thanks for the heads up! It didn't bother me quite as much as it did to some, but I'm glad that Nimra gets some proper attention. :)

  3. It takes a lot to admit a mistake. A lot of companies would have just pushed it under the rug and moved on.

  4. Wow, that was pretty fast! Of course, it would have saved them umpteen hours and dollars if they'd gotten it right the first time...ya think they would've learned something from Liar. I'm a huge fan of Bloomsbury jackets in general, and said so to the rep at ALA, but it's gonna be irritating if I've got to doublecheck every one in the future to see if it's whitewashed....oh, well, third times the charm!
