So many covers have come out recently that it's getting harder and harder for me to pick out favorites. Here, though, are some that I find particularly stunning.
Ruby Red by Kerstin Geir
(Henry Holt & Co. / May 10, 2011)
This German import has gotten a fabulously classy cover makeover. I can almost feel the texture, see the sheen of the metallicized components, taste the luxuriousness of that shade of red.
Dreams of Significant Girls by Cristina Garcia
(Simon & Schuster / July 12, 2011)
Simple yet evocative, and hopefully hints at the three different cultures that are explored in this novel.
Tris and Izzie by Mette Ivie Harrison
(EgmontUSA / Oct. 11, 2011)
This is so breathtaking. I love how the camera focus is on the couple in the middleground. I also love the color scheme, which reminds me of nostalgia.
So Silver Bright (Theatre Illuminata, Book 3) by Lisa Mantchev
(Feiwel & Friends / Sept. 13, 2011)
Jason Chan I believe is the artist behind these magnificent creations. I can never get over how whimsically beautiful all of Lisa's covers are. Can I pleeeeease have this in poster-size, framed on my wall?
Jessica Rules the Dark Side by Beth Fantaskey
(Harcourt / Jan. 9, 2012)
*gasp* The PURPLE! What a lovely companion to the first book's cover. I think I might like this one even more. The model's dress, her expression.... and did I mention that lovely, rich, royal purple?
