Don't Judge a Book by its Cover, except...

...when it has New Cover Art! 

Actually, not new art, because the painting that now adorns the cover of Kismet was painted over a hundred years ago, by Anders Zorn. A late Victorian Era lovely (the painted subject, not Zorn. Not that I'm putting him down, but I don't think he qualifies as "lovely.") I am still very, very fond of the original cover, a sketch detail by John Singer Sargent. However, I think color trumps quirkiness in this case, and the lettering change on the shaded band is an improvement, too.
