As always, this weekly book blog meme is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
This week’s TTT is to list book covers I’d frame as art. I’ve mentioned before how important I think book covers are to the literary world, here, as well as reblogged another post about book spines, here. Book design/art are definitely one piece of the puzzle of why I prefer physical books over ebooks.
Splintered and Unhinged by A.G. Howard. I had to start this list off with these. Seriously, these books are BEAUTIFUL, and I totally gushed over them in my Splintered review. I love that Howard’s crew decided to still take the time to make the books look so pretty.
The Monsters of Templeton by Lauren Groff. I had never heard of this book before I stumbled upon it at some bookstore. I pretty much love anything with cool trees on it, especially since this one symbolizes the family connections. I also loved the play of red amid all the black.
The Lorax by Dr. Seuss. Of COURSE I had to include a Dr. Seuss book here, after all his drawings are distinctive. Not to mention that The Lorax, while somewhat depressing, is one of my favorite childhood books. I speak for the trees!
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. This book is iconic, and I think the cover would look awesome hanging on the wall. Enough said.
The All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness. I don’t know what it is about them really. I listened to the first two on audio, but when Book of Life comes out this year, I’m definitely buying the set in hardback because they’re just so pretty.
Duma Key by Stephen King. I couldn’t possibly make this list without putting a SK book on here, because I love his stuff. A lot of his hardback covers go all the way around, which is really cool. Many of them are also positively frightening, haha, but I love the juxtoposition of the beautiful beach scene with the darkness of the story on this one.
What book covers do you love?
