Ebook and print book covers

In 2013 Anne Else's memoir, The colour of food, was originally published as an ebook by Awa Press. It was so successful in that format that the next year the book was published in print form. Here we see the cover on an ereader and as a printed book. For a book to go from ebook to print was less common than the reverse, but it indicated the impact that ebooks were having in the literary market place.
