Top Ten Tuesday – Book Cover Art

Posted May 6, 2014 by Bonnie in Top Ten Tuesday / 14 Comments

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 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!
