I totally judge books by their covers! I know it’s wrong…but I don’t care! I just a sucker for a pretty cover and in the YA world there are tons of lovely covers out there, but sometimes you get some that just stand out above the rest.
This week’s Top Ten Tuesday theme is “Cover Art I’d Frame”. I guess if I’m thinking about book cover art as “frameable” I tend to lean towards those that are illustrated. There are probably other cover I’d consider “frameworthy” floating around out there, but here are ten that just stand out as lovely.
I love the muted pastel colors and the shape of the girl’s arms.
These covers are just so strikingly beautiful that I’d want them hanging in a fancy dressing room, if I was wealthy enough to have a fancy dressing room, that is.
When you look at this cover closely you see just how detailed and gorgeous the brush strokes are.
The simplicity and vivid colors of his covers just draw me in. They remind me of the paper cutouts of Matisse.
I actually haven’t read this book, but I’ve always loved the look of these trees.
This one is prettier without the text over it because the title is covering the horse and rider’s reflection in the water.
I love the simplicity of the silhouette and sunset.
Nothing beats classically illustrated book covers like these.
Jay did the artwork for the first three books in this series and they’re so bulbous and beautiful!
This has always been one of my favorite covers. I just adore the touch of whimsy Zeltner’s work has. I actually like his non book covers even better than this!
Well, would you frame any of the book covers I’ve selected this week?
