It would be interesting to see how that kind of treatment would play out across other genre covers. What would be reoccuring themes would be revealed in SF or Fantasy or Westerns, etc.

I think you'd get more variation, certainly. I like some of the covers they displayed though.

Lou, do publishers try for a "house look" to shorthand readers what they're getting. So the look from that slideshow clues readers into paranormal romance or erotic fantasy for easy shopping. And I thought some of the covers were pretty good, even so.
