Imperfect Bliss by Susan Fales-Hill
(Atria / July 3, 2012)
I'm loving this "modern frieze"-esque style. It's contemporary while evoking a timeless style of art that speaks well for its designer and the contents of the book.
City of a Thousand Dolls by Miriam Forster
(Harper Children's / Feb. 5, 2013)
Talk about a book cover of epic movie poster proportions! I want this hanging up on the walls of malls, cinemas, Times Square... And on top of being epic, the colors are also bright and glowing.
Lovely, Dark and Deep by Amy McNamara
(Simon & Schuster / Nov. 13, 2012)
This is collector's-edition postcard-worthy. I love the colors and the positioning of the title. And you probably can't see it, but there is a white border around the image, which adds to its collector's-edition image feel. I swoon!
Lies, Knives, and Girls in Red Dresses by Ron Koertge
(Candlewick / July 10, 2012)
This eye-catching cover evokes the art of paper-cutting and is a lingering mix of art deco and gothic. Is it rewarding to look at? I should say so!
Tell the Wolves I'm Home: A Novel by Carol Rifka Brunt
(Dial Press / June 19, 2012)
Oh my, this reminds me of those embroidered book covers that have been slowly but surely winning over hearts everywhere. How cool is this cover??!
So, what's your verdict? Which of these fits your style the most?
