Cover Awe: Sweet & Striking

Recommended Posts

Let’s look at some cool covers, shall we?

A Million to One by Adiba Jaigirdar. An illustration cover of four young woman. Top middle is a blonde woman in a big, pink hat. In her gloved hands is a parasol. Middle right is a brunette with wavy hair. She is in a blue dress and clutching a strand of pearls. Bottom middle is a brown-skinned young woman. Her hair is pulled back in an intricate bun. She's wearing light pink and wrapping cloth around her hand. Middle right is another brown-skinned young woman with her dark hair pulled to one side. She has a glittery blue hair clip in place and is wearing blue and white. A fountain pen is in her hand.

Amanda: I actually think this cover is really sweet.

I want to hold hands in a big bed!

Carrie: The handholding is a sweet touch.

Claudia I like it too, and it reminds me of a similar Tessa Dare cover — I think A Week to be Wicked.

Elyse: I just requested this one and I want it so bad. I’m in a mood since I started watching The Gilded Age.

American Royalty by Tracey Livesay. An illustrated cover of a man and a woman. The man has light skin and dark hair. He's in a royal uniform. The woman has deep brown skin and a beautiful, voluminous red dress on with gold hoop earrings and red lipstick. The background is a deeper red with a quilted pattern and the title fond is in gold.

Elyse: Yes please!

Amanda: The deep reds are so striking and really make this stand out. Also, I need all the makeup details!

Sarah: I received a print ARC of this, and when I opened the envelope I said, out loud, ‘Oh, WOW.’ In person, this cover glows, I swear.

Station Eternity by Mur Lafferty. Cover is in creams, blues, and pinks. It's a silhouetted image of a woman in glasses. Half the woman is cast in shadow in a deep blue. In her glasses, which are outlined in a cream color, are the reflection of planets and a bee.

Cover designed by Will Staehle

Amanda: Loving all the use of negative space in the design!!

Sarah: MIDSOLAR MURDERS I see what you did there. And this is extremely interesting design and illustration. I’m so impressed.
