I just went to and searched for "Swallows and Amazons" under "Books"; nothing printed that came up used the 2016 movie picture that showed on the Kindle listing. There were several different images that turned up, and none were the classic Cape image sets. Interestingly, one, a 1993 hardback, showed a photo from the '70s movie as the cover, and two DVDs, both ostensibly 2016 releases, showed the two different movies. The Jonathan Cape site was no help at all. The audio recording of SA had a cover in the style of the classic Cape covers, but with totally different and unrelated pictures (assorted etchings of marine and avian wildlife, and a sidewheeler strongly resembling the SS Savannah of 1819!).
