Cover design unveiled for new Harper Lee novel
NEW YORK - The cover for Harper Lee's new novel will surely remind you of the cover for her old one.
On Wednesday, HarperCollins unveiled the jacket art for Lee's "Go Set a Watchman," the unexpected follow-up to her classic "To Kill a Mockingbird." The new cover, like the one for "To Kill a Mockingbird," is a moody illustration featuring an oak tree in front. The art for "Go Set a Watchman" also shows train tracks and a train in the distance. In a statement released by HarperCollins, company President Michael Morrison noted that "Go Set a Watchman" begins with "Mockingbird" protagonist Scout Finch returning by train 20 years later, in the 1950s, to her native Alabama.
HarperCollins has announced a first printing of 2 million copies and a July 14 publication date.
