In its few short years on this earth, Horns has become a cult classic. While horror / terror / gothic fiction isn’t my usually jam, Horns is easily one of the best books I read last year. Joe Hill has an insane talent for everything creepy and mind-bending.
And because it’s such a popular novel, it’s been translated into languages from all over the world – making for a host of pretty covers.
From left to right, top to bottom: UK edition, North American hardcover edition, Thai edition, Norwegian edition, Japanese edition, Italian edition, Finnish edition, Hebrew edition, and German edition.
For obvious reasons, horns feature heavily on these covers – although I find it interesting that the Norwegian edition is the only cover featuring a woman. My favourite cover has to be the Hebrew edition – simple, striking, and stylized.
