New UK covers for ‘The Mortal Instruments’

It was recently revealed that Simon & Schuster will repackage the covers of Cassandra Clare’s The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices and USA Today shared the new cover for the paperback edition for City of Bones. It was also announced that the covers for the English The Mortal Instruments paperback editions are going to change and today, on World Book Day, the website revealed the new covers.

Have a look:

In July 2015 Walker Books UK will publish a major re-issue programme of New York Times No.1 bestselling The Mortal Instruments Series by Cassandra Clare to attract a whole new audience as well as being a collectable for existing fans.

Each of the six titles in the series features gorgeous cover illustrations by Mila Furstova, the artist who created the album artwork for Coldplay’s Ghost Stories. The first book in the Mortal Instruments series, City of Bones, was a major movie release in 2013.

Cassie also posted about the covers and said:

Lots of people asked about the new designs for the covers of TMI in the UK/Australia/NZ/Ireland. Now, these covers aren’t going to replace the existing covers. The existing covers will still be sold. These will be sold also, either in the teen or adult section. They simply give an alternate look.

These are some of my favorite covers I’ve ever had. These are etchings done by artist Mila Fürstová. Within each shape, you can see careful details: Clary and Jace separated on City of Bones, together in City of Heavenly Fire, Alicante in the rose on City of Glass.

Furstova also did the cover for Coldplay’s Ghost Stories, which I love!

These are delicate and ethereal and lovely — very different from other covers I’ve had. I love the range!

You should definitely visit Cassie’s tumblr to see a larger and more HQ version of the covers. The details on the covers are amazing! Simply click on the picture and then click it again to enlarge it!
I love the colours of the new covers and I think that City of Ashes is my favourite.
Furthermore, I was told that

the scans of the artwork don’t quite do them justice, the real pieces are absolutely stunning!

What do you think of the new UK covers and which one do you like best?

    Ok, these officially make the US covers look ugly. I love the use of color and the designs. Simple and elegant. I’d order these on Amazon in a heartbeat (once I figure out how to transfer US money to UK money).

  9. Hi everyone, it has been joy to make the artworks for Cassandra’s great books and I hope you will always enjoy looking at them…..and the longer you look, the more hidden meanings you find.
