DVC Clones

Why is it that every second / third new fiction book should bear a resemblance to the cover of The Da Vinci Code? Most of the similarities are related to the font or the colour combination in the book's cover. It is a bit irritating to see many popular publishing houses imitating DVC to get instant recognition. In sharp contrast, the plain white cover of J D Salinger's Catcher in the Rye still stands out in the book shelves.

  • I know you have a long blogroll but that is no excuse - where is your tag about which ones you would like to meet, why and where? Come on then.

    I hope that doesn't lure readers into buying the book. As a tangent, I noticed that most of JD Salinger's books have that very same cover.

  • @30in2005,
    Am too lazy to complete tags :-) Can you excuse me?

    @Krithiga,
    My comment was only about the cover and not the content. Even I haven't managed to complete my copy of Catcher in the Rye.

  • Excusing you this time but not the next!

    By the way you & everybody at Desipundit missed a beat in putting together some lovely Independence days posts that are up in the Indian blogosphere - on how people celebrated, being Indian, what it all means, especially to the NRI crowd. You guys seem a bit stuck on the already big and famous bloggers!
