I received an email a couple days ago from the creator of Enchanted Doll (a line of collectable jointed porcelain dolls), whose doll "Cinderella" was used on the cover of CINDER in Spain. There was lots of oohing and aahing over the gorgeous cover when I posted it, and seeing the doll in its entirety, I'm sure there's going to be much more! I've spent the last hour swooning over Cinderella and all the gorgeous dolls in the collection.



Cinderella by Marina Bychkova, Enchanted Dolls

Doesn't she have the most darling face?!

I also adore how the publisher decided to photoshop one of her legs in the final cover image to make it look more human. Do I sense SYMBOLISM?

Compare:

CINDER, Spanish Edition, from Mondadori


Cinderella by Marina Bychkova, Enchanted Dolls

You can read more about the artist on her blog, including her own thoughts on her doll being chosen for the CINDER cover.

And if you think Cinderella is pretty, you really must go peek through her gallery. So much gorgeousness!! Including other fairy tale favorites, such as the Princess and the Pea, Beauty and the Beast, and Alice in Wonderland.

What do you think of this cover inspiration?

Something very spooky about a doll being a cover model...

I absolutely love this doll for your book. I love the silver dress and the articulated joints! She so perfectly reminds me of a cyborg. (And it's hard for me to pick a favorite cover!)

I love this cover *u*
Hello, the truth is I just finished reading Cinder... and is simply AMAZING.

I'm Spanish, for both my copy has this cover. It's beautiful, in fact, I like much more than the original. And the doll (I love this type of doll)... wow hahahahha.

Waiting for Scarlet ^^...
