The Secret Diary Of Laura Palmer: Every Cover Of Every Edition

Written by David Lynch’s then 22-year-old daughter, Jennifer Lynch, the Secret Diary of Laura Palmer (Amazon) was published on September 15 in 1990 right before the second season premiere of Twin Peaks in the U.S. More than 20 different editions and translations were released since then. Here’s an attempt to collect all their covers.

UPDATE: We’re actively pursuing to have the Secret Diary of Laura Palmer turned into an audio book narrated by Sheryl Lee. Please show your support!

  1. You got the Finnish cover right! I’m from Finland and I’ve always wondered why the cover of “Laura Palmerin salainen päiväkirja” is green when on the tv show it was red (and the non-secret diary was green).

  2. WHERE CAN I BY THIS BOOK?
    I had it before the summer, but lost it while I was out traveling, and im desperate to get a new one!
    Please help!

  3. Danish one is missing too…tried to look it up on google pics so i could link it but its a no-show…so guess it will be hard to find.

  4. I’ve got the Dutch version! Bought it two years ago secondhand since it isn’t available any other way but it made me understand Laura much better!
