Top Ten Tuesday- Coverage

While I'm pretty sure The Broke and the Bookish have done a cover-related topic before, I'm here to participate because I'm all for awesome cover art. Typically, I prefer simplicity and a clean look, and also that the author's name appears smaller than the title. I haven't read all of these particular books, but that's not what we're about this week.

The Secret Garden by Francis Hodgson Burnett- I love that the cover of the newest Pengui
n edition was originally embroidered (I think, for the price, that all you get is the print; I'd LOVE the real one).

The Lost Art of Reading: Why Books Matter in a Distracted Time by David Ulin- I like the fact that it's sort of an off size, matte, and has a simple, but demanding typeface.

Girlchild by Hassman- I just noticed the author only has one name. Interesting- is he crazy like Cher and Madonna? I love the old school feel of the library card flap.

The Call by Yannick Murphy- I just finished this and loved the vibrancy of the orange cover (again, matte), and the shiny black cow in the front. I'm not even a fan of the color orange! It just worked, though.

The Strange Case of the Origami Yoda by Tom Angleberger- I don't really feel like an
explanation is necessary...

The Selected Works of TS Spivet by Reif Larsen- You know, because I haven't sung his praises enough... Great square shape with map making instruments.

Solo by Rana Dasgupta- Great color, love the imagery.

By Nightfall by Michael Cummingham- Decent book, but I really just love the dark tulip

Runner's World- the Runner's Body by Ross Tucker- I love images showing what parts of the body are being engaged.

A Fraction of the Whole by Steven Tolz- I love the contrast of the sepia tones with the bright blue accents.
