Wednesday Cover Story: Revamping the Republic

The acclaimed Republic trilogy, by Jack Ludlow – including The Pillars of Rome (a Top Ten bestseller), The Sword of Revenge and The Gods of War – has been a great success for us. Now the Romans are getting a revamp and so far, the first two books in the trilogy have been released with the new look.


I have to say I love these new editions. Having said that I liked the old covers too…but these, I find have much more…well, more “Oomph” (for lack of a better way of putting it). I do have a penchant for simple emblematic covers – but even so, I think it’s a much slicker look, simple but strong – they stand out more. I want them on my shelf – face-out. I want to collect them (indeed it’s a pity there are only three in the set) and in fact, I’m dying to see how the third will round things up.

But, what do you think? Do you think are they better than the old versions?
