Even this has incredible design!
While I'm not a fan of that shade of green (especially with all the green in the image that's blending in), colors often look different in final form.   In person, it may quite possibly be stunning!  At the moment, however, I'm "meh" over the green.  It's amazing to see how different the model looks in this image compared to the first two.  Plus, she looks...happy?  So that's something!  The bird may not be the same one from the first cover, but it's free now, which is saying a lot.  Her white dress symbolizes purity and freedom, too, plus she's holding her wedding ring in her hand (And her hands look empty if you're looking at a smaller version of the cover, I know).

I always like how MUCH is going on in these covers and always want to know more about the individual objects lying around.  This series still has one of my favorite cover/interior treatments for font and design.

I have to say, however...  I still like the original jacket the best of the three:

What are your thoughts on the new cover?  
I can't wait to read this!!
