More Rooks!

Recently I commented on the fact that Oneworld Classics' forthcoming new edition of Ivan Bunin's The Village would have the same cover image as a number of other great Russian works. Someone at Oneworld must have realised the same thing, as at the last minute it got a new cover:

However, never fear! My point still stands, as here are another five books, all with 'The Rooks Have Come Back' by Alexei Kondratyevich Savrasov as the cover image (plus the two in the original post, for a grand total of seven). (For added inter-connectedness of things, the Dover Dead Souls makes use of a typeface based on the work of Edward Gorey.)

At around the same time, we also looked at the proliferation of deepaks on book covers, as drawn to my attention by KevinfromCanada. One of the covers discussed was Kim Echlin's The Disappeared, which I now discover shares a cover with a travel book by Ilija Trojanow.
