Gimmie! Gimmie! Gimmie
a man after midnight this sweet book! (If the man is handy, we'll take him too.)
Suzanne Collins created the mockingjay in her mind, but it was Scholastic editorial director David Levithan that imagined it for the cover of the books. As the Hunger Games is being rereleased in a new collector's edition, Scholastic was given the go-ahead to re-imagine the symbol of Katniss Everdeen and her plight once again, perhaps to the affect of what the pin will look like in the movie! David explains:
”It’s been fun for the art director and me to revisit the mockingjay images. Amazingly, we chose the mockingjay image for the first book before we knew how crucial it would be in the trilogy, and we concepted the cover directions for Catching Fire and Mockingjay before we’d read a word of either book. Now we have the opportunity to go back and create new icons for each book. The Hunger Games Collector’s Edition shows a mockingjay in flight holding a bow, outside of the pin image featured on the original book, teasing the active role it’s going to play.”
We like it! We like it A LOT, though we're sure the original covers will always resonate with fans more strongly.
What do U think? Will be buying an extra copy of Hunger Games for this new cover???
