Every Tuesday at 7pm GMT there’s a book blogger chat, hosted by Becky from Becky Bedbug on her Twitter. There’s always a theme and often after the chat it’s still on my mind and I’ve always half thought of doing a blog post about the topic. This week the topic was book covers so I thought I’d shade my favourite ones!
This is probably my favourite cover of all time! I don’t own a physical copy of this book but I love the yellow background, the suave relaxing character and especially the Y being used as a martini glass!
While we’re on The Great Gatsby, I LOVE this art deco F. Scott Fitzgerald hardback series. It’s designed by Coralie Bickford-Smith and it just screams class and decadence.
The Penguin Clothbound Classics are GORGEOUS, all of them! Of course I’m choosing the flamingo covered Alice in Wonderland as my favourite. The series is also designed by Coralie Bickford-Smith
While I’m mentioning Coralie Bickford-Smith, I might as well show you her own book, The Fox and the Star, which is just stunning. I could stare at the cover for hours and I’m sure the inside is just as beautiful.
When I reviewed this book I mentioned how much I like this cover and I still love it. I think it’s so smart and the orange colour is beautiful. It’s designed by Mark Ecob and he’s designed loads of other covers I’ve seen recently and enjoyed. He also did the other Magpie series covers which are also fab though this still stays my favourite.
This cover of Ninteen Eighty Four by George Orwell is so so smart. I don’t even need to say anything else!
Another clever book cover is Look Who’s Back by Timur Vermes. When you look at this book, you know straight away who this book is about. If you want to know more about it, you can check out my book review here.
This Love, Nina cover is just so pretty, it is just steeped in nostalgia! I love the colour scheme and how this almost has that look of an old photo. It makes me crave Toffos!
The title of this book is Shrill: Notes from a Loud Woman and this cover design is perfect! I want to check it out for a number of reasons and the cover is definitely one of those, the clever design makes me think the book itself will be clever.
Finally I’m going to end on another beautiful design. This is for Vinegar Girl by Anne Tyler, a retelling of The Taming of the Shrew which is out next month. Ever seen seeing this cover I’ve fallen in love with it!
And that’s it for now. I’m sure ther are many, many, many more covers that I like. I might do another post once I have come across them. Let me know down below which book covers you love.
