  1. Is it just me, or are the Australian titles consistently better designed than the non-Australian ones?

    I don’t know if the Silver Inky longlist titles have the same covers as on non-Australian editions or if those are Australian-designed editions.

    But I suspect there’s some law in Australia that says foreign YA books can’t have blue covers.

    It’s a theory, anyway.
