Cover Awe: Great Couples

Recommended Posts

Welcome to Cover Awe, where we get to look at pretty covers!


Cover illustration by Christin Engelberth

Amanda: I love the light and dark comparisons of their mounts! Thought I’d definitely be keeping an eye on that dagger/sword. I hope she’s throwing it up rather than it falling down.

Maya: I LOVE the blue horse. And the composition does a lot of good work setting up the characters – one of the land, the other of the air, united by their love of throwing knives at each other. The best kind of bestie is the one that throws you a knife when you need it!

Sneezy: This cover is so beautiful and descriptive!!! I absolutely adore the colours and movement, and the chemistry between the two characters!!!

Sarah: If they are the outlaws, I’m in. Let’s go.

Elyse: All other illustrated covers can go home now. I love the pattern of her scarf and how it gives it depth. And her earrings. Gah

Carrie: The flow from the scarf to the earrings to the collar to the colored-in letters is beautifully composed.

Amanda: All of Jane Igharo’s covers remind me of Alyssa Cole’s Reluctant Royals with their amazing clothing patterns and details.

Maya: The cover illustrator does a great job of balancing that mustard with the green, which saves us all from a ‘70s color palette that doesn’t really need a revival.

Sneezy: I’m a sucker for when couples wear matching clothes, especially when it’s done with colours and details. Naturally I’m goo goo gaa gaa over this!!! I especially love how the artist showed they’re partners while also expressing their individuality.

Sarah: The illustrator’s talent with the expression in her eyes and especially her mouth is…wow.

Elyse: The tattoos. The glasses and lipstick combo The boots. I love everything about both their looks so much

Maya: So cute!!!!!!

Susan: Both of those looks are goals, wow.

Sneezy: AAHH! I CAN’T!!

Sarah: I feel like I know all the possible tropes from one illustration and I am in awe.
