The Official Website of Stephenie Meyer
[Webmaster's Note: This page features the Breaking Dawn color scheme. It was a bit too ugly to keep on the rest of the site, but it took me several hours to make, so I figured it should be somewhere on the site.]

(After reading early Amazon comments, I'm pretty sure I was not being paranoid in that assumption.) Of course, having read the book, you know this cover was a red herring twist on the reality.
Here's a later version of the same theme, with my preferred Jacob actor:
