OCTOBER 17 – Top 5 favourite book covers
Cheating a bit, but here we go:
Human Acts by Han Kang: This is one of my all-time favorite cover designs; I love the simple yet eerie imagery and I love the dissonance of the muted yellow.
The William Morrow covers of Agatha Christie‘s novels. A few faves: And Then There Were None, Murder on the Orient Express, Endless Night, Sparkling Cyanide. I’m obsessed with this series of covers and I’m slowly working on collecting them all…. I may go broke in the process but I’m having fun with it so far.
Running by Cara Hoffman. This was a very strange little novel that I didn’t completely love, but I think the cover design is stunning – I love the Greek statues and the slightly off-tone primary colors.
The Vegetarian by Han Kang: I genuinely tried to narrow it down and choose only one Han Kang cover, but I love both of them so much. I love how delightfully creepy this one is, and I love the bold red of the background.
The Kopp Sisters series by Amy Stewart: Girl Waits With Gun, Lady Cop Makes Trouble, Miss Kopp’s Midnight Confessions. I love the old fashioned newspaper cover design and the use of bold colors. And Constance Kopp’s no-nonsense expression in all of these images is pretty great.
What can I say – I’m pretty predictable. Bold colors + some cool art design + clean font are the way to my heart.
What are some of your favorite book covers?
