New Harper Lee Book Cover Revealed by Publisher

It seems that my February 7 post about the cover of Harper Lee's new novel, Go Set a Watchman, was premature because the book's publisher has just announced an entirely different look for the much anticipated novel.

So here's an update:

Apparently, this is NOT the cover of the new book.

This is the new cover announced yesterday.
And, for reference purposes, this is what the original cover looked like.

I do like the "new, new" cover a lot more than I like the one supposedly announced back in early February.  It makes much more sense when compared to the original (disregard that 50th anniversary addition to it).  I like the continuity implied by the resemblance of the two covers and the sixties-feel that both give me.  

So maybe this is the final cover...for sure, it won't be the last bit of news to trickle out between now and July, however.
