Inkheart Cover Design

While reading Inkheart by Cornelia Funke; I came across a passage towards the end of the story where the book called 'Inkheart' is described. The cover page with its imagery and colors is described.  Reading that I turned to the cover of the book I was reading only to find them out of sync. I wondered why the cover artist or the author did not pick up the description of the cover in the book to design the cover of the book.

Why is the actual cover different from the description inside? Did the artist NOT know of the description? Did the author forget that the cover design was described in the book and that was supposed to be used as a basis of design by the artist? Or was it that the publishers feel that the actual description of the book within the book was not saleable enough?


I googled about it to see if i can find something ... Did not.
Anybody knows anything about it ...
