Top Ten Tuesday – Book Cover Art

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Who doesn’t love a pretty cover? I know I’ve fallen prey to many a pretty cover (with a less than pretty storyline) but there’s something mesmerizing about a truly special cover that draws me in making me want to read its story without knowing a single thing about it. I adore the recent influx of illustrated book covers and am forever a sucker for a pretty dress cover but they aren’t something you would typically find on my walls. I’m partial to book covers with landscapes: bridges, mountains, gardens, the sea, forests, I love them all. Here are several gorgeous ones that I would consider especially frame-worthy.

    I approve of your taste in covers, and I also like how easy to categorize it is. These make sense together. I’m very scattered. I ALMOST included The Lifeboat, because I love that cover, but I’m still annoyed about how much the book bored me. But still PRETTY. I love it.

    I have always liked pretty landscapes. I used to go through magazines and calendars and rip out the ones that I liked! You chose some beautiful covers!
