My mom used to read lots of mysteries when I was growing up (which is, I think, why I started reading Ngaio Marsh – though it was years before I knew how to pronounce it), and I remember her bemoaning the fact that she’d be reading a series, and then the publisher would change all the covers and she’d pick up one she’d already read because she didn’t recognize that she’d already read it.
Well, these days, her problem might be more that she misses out on a book because she assumes she recognizes it, but doesn’t. In other words: cover art gets used and reused.
Oooh, and I’ve seen that Emma Hamilton picture on the cover of another book! (Unsurprisingly, another biography of Emma Hamilton.)
 Pronounced ‘marsh’. Oh, you mean Ngaio: NYE-oh.
