Some cover arts of foreign novels in Japan.

I've read a sci-fi novel "The Lost Fleet Dauntless".(Do you know?)
My one is Japanese version. I'm sad that I don't have enough ability to read original novel. OK. Recently I noticed my favorite novels have two cover arts between original one and Japanese one. Let's compare them.
Dauntless.
Dauntless (The Lost Fleet, Book 1)彷徨える艦隊 旗艦ドーントレス (ハヤカワ文庫SF)
Starship Troopers.
Starship Troopers宇宙の戦士 (ハヤカワ文庫 SF (230))
Childhood's End
Childhood's End (S.F.Masterworks)幼年期の終り (ハヤカワ文庫 SF (341))
Rendezvous With Rama.
Japanese title is Rendezvous In Space.
Rendezvous with Rama宇宙のランデヴー (ハヤカワ文庫 SF (629))
The Moon is a Harsh Mistress.
The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress月は無慈悲な夜の女王 (ハヤカワ文庫 SF 207)
Orbit
(Japanese title is Leaving from Orbit. This may not be a sci-fi work? Hehe)
Orbit: A Novel軌道離脱 (ハヤカワ文庫NV)
Each versions have each goodness.
But I can't stop thinking about one thing. The letters always spoil these illustrations! I want them to move the letters to upper or lower part.
To me, the best cover art is The Sky Crawler. A Japanese sci-fi novel.
The letters on white is a plastic film so we can get rid of it to look at only the art. I love this idea. This novel turned to anime. Let's check it if you have an interest.
