  1. They are all cool, but my vote is for “rainbow pig” because it fits best with the “out of place” concept, in a metaphorical way without being overtly illustrative (like my second choice “tea farm umbrella”). So excited, beautiful covers!

    • I really like the “Tea Farm Umbrella” one, but mostly I just really hope it is not the last one, the “Rainbow Pig” one… haha I find to be a very off-putting cover… It kind of wears its concept a little strong on the sleeve.

      I feel like people will think, “I know you’re not suppose to judge a book by its cover… but I really, really wanna.”

  2. I like the fish flying in the air (of course!)

  3. Tea first, fish second, pig distant third, forest last, but good pixes all.
    Tea (Boseong?) not very Korean but rich in interpretations for fiction and poetry consistent w thema. The title typo is also the most successful.
    Fish also rather classic (but we don’t have to be disruptive every year), interesting blur / shadow. Good compo w title. The first two covers are more likely to catch the reader’s eye.
    Pig maybe too much interior magazine / cityguide illustration. We also need to alternate after last year’s colorful ddeok.

  4. 1) temple fish – this would be my favorite but I don’t like that it’s so out of focus you can’t even tell what the heck it is.
    2) tea farm umbrella – I like this one best, but would like it more if the photo were lightened up.
    3) backlit forest – no, too jumbly.
    4) rainbow pig – No-! Just way too childish and the main message here to me is “this is a childhood education book and it’s trying to hard to be accessible”.
