Bad Jane Eyre Covers

This isn't strictly a post about the 19th-century, but indulge me. A friend just showed me this rather horrific cover of a 1960s Italian edition of Jane Eyre:
1013498_747521496001_1041721801_n
and I realized upon seeing it that there have got to be some DOOZIES out there. On top of the fact that it's never been out of print, it's just one of those wacky stories that's going to prompt some really strange cover art. I'm including film, play and opera posters, as well.

In addition, I know there was recently a contest out there to design a new Jane Eyre cover and I've tried to avoid any non-professional covers. It's somehow funnier to realize that this stupidity made it through a marketing board where 20 people said, "Ah, yes, excellent! Rochester is absolutely a ginger Rhett Butler with a fugly smoking jacket and a pirate eye patch! Jane would absolutely be dressed in lacy, expensive clothing from 40 years in the future! Quickly! TO PRINT!" However, some amateur covers might have accidentally made it in. But for the most part, know that these covers were real.

Jane Eyre: The Story of a NED
(Seriously, the fuck is up with her bonnet? It's some kind of horrific straw baseball cap. She looks like an absolute thug)

Jane Eyre: The Story of a Wolf-Girl
This was the poster for a play in (I believe) Shanghai. Still looks like one of those howling wolf T-shirts.

This is an authentic Victorian handbill for a play adaptation.

Jane Eyre: The Wheat Edition
[ETA: Someone just suggested that this cover could also be called "Jane Eyre: The Terrance Malick Edition", which made me laugh so hard I did a spit-take when I read it]

So . . . those covers were a thing. If nothing else, it makes you appreciate a well-done book jacket.
