These came out in early July, but I only just saw them for the first time in an Australian bookshop. They're a set of reissues from the Faber & Faber backlist, the 'Secrets and Lies' collection, each of which uses a big photo of a face for the cover. I'm not sure why, but they don't quite work for me. Perhaps it's that, though many of these are historical novels, the photos themselves look so new--though why this should bother me, I don't know. So much for intelligent criticism. They are, however, a welcome change from the usual headless cropped photos on book covers.
