If you read my last post, good news! Bloomsbury is reissuing Magic Under Glass with a new cover.

Hopefully, they've got the message now, and this will be the last time they'll have to withdraw a cover due to whitewashing. (Which, incidentally, is not the only unfortunate can't-really-be-an-accident misrepresentation publishers have slapped onto this and other books. Several people have noted the covers of Ask Me No Questions and Secrets of Truth and Beauty, both of which center around overweight young women yet have covers portraying conventionally pretty girls without so much as a chubby cheek in sight.)

Still, this is definitely a step. Yay progress!

I hate that so much! When a cover doesn't even SLIGHTLY match the book, or the person obviously read the three-sentence blurb in a newspaper. I'm glad they're changing that at least some!
