A United Nations of WTF: Flowers in the Attic International Covers
Thanks for coming, Languages of the World! I'm glad you all brought your cover ideas for our new Flowers in the Attic releases to show me! Who wants to go first?Sigh. Be careful what you wish for, right? Polish, that's a perfectly nice attic.
.... all right, Romania, at least it's a sex flower. Fine. Whatever. Does anybody have any ideas that AREN'T FLOWERS?
All right, Spanish, let's see what you got!
Spanish this is... this is a little "sympathy card", don't you think? Or "short religious book your grandma buys you about grief from the hospital gift shop?"
... English audiobook, you can go fucking fuck yourself. Okay, NO MORE FLOWERS. Does anybody have anything a little more orig-
You too, Portugese.
Turkish, I dig that you're changing the title and all but can we please have some covers that are about the characters?
JESUS FUCK BULGARIAN that is not what I meant is this a Hawaiian shirt who are these people is this a really cheap soap opera for teenagers no just no also don't think I didn't notice those goddamned flowers
Chinese that is not what an actual face looks like and is this a YouTube makeup tutorial and you are aware that Cathy isn't the villain of the piece, right?
Chinese! Didn't think you had it in you after that last one! This is really great! Seriously, this is fantastic!
Kinda same idea, Czech? I like the idea of this one except a) Cathy is clearly NOT in the attic, and b) what's going on with her below the waist?
Is something really gross going on to the left, Dutch?
Is a rat throwing up a live frog?
French, which one of the toddlers behind Resentful Cathy
is supposed to be her older brother?
French, that is not an improvement.
Greek, you literally just stole the inner cover of the American edition and put it in a fake picture frame. No. You get a zero on this one and I am calling your mother this time.
Hungarian, this is just one of those 90's Nancy Drew books.
You're not fooling anybody.
Good work, Italian! I like this one a lot - nice menacing figure,
but why does Chris have an Afro?
Russian, is this a book about the Holocaust? This feels like a book about the Holocaust. Only with also an 80's miniseries going on in the top right. I think we need to maybe go in a more atmospheric direction like...
Lithuanian, fair enough. That is some creepy ass shit.
GAH WHAT THE FUCK PORTUGUESE
Damn, Spanish! That's more like it!
Keep at it, Spanish! I really like how you're
trying to capture the feel of the book!
Vietnamese, did you actually read the assignment? Who are these kids? Why does this look like a movie that's probably about missionaries?
Goddamn it, Japanese. God. Damn. It.
