Cover Awe: Textures, Cats, & More

Recommended Posts

Welcome back to Cover Awe, where we talk about things we like about book covers.

The Spare Man by Mary Robinette Kowal. An illustrated cover of a man and woman starting in front of silver, sleek futuristic bar. The man is in a dark grey 3-piece suit, leaning against the bar and looking seriously at the woman in front of him. She has a short, curly  blonde bob and is wearing a silver knee-length dress with sparkly blue shawl. She's using a cane, while a small white terrier is perched at feet.

Amanda: I love how the artist drew the different fabric textures and details!

Sarah: I love this cover. I love looking at it, I love how subtle and stylish it is, I love the lighting. I love it.

When Life Gives You Vampires by Gloria Duke. A illustrated blue cover with the silhouettes of bats. A plus-sized woman stands with her hands on her hips, wearing coral pants that end at the ankle with a pink tank top, black blazer, and black strappy heels. She has curly orange hair.

Cover art by Louisa Cannell

Amanda: The coral and pinks of the outfit really make her standout. And yes, I want this outfit, though I’ll be changing out the heels for booties.

Sarah: This is so cute.

Blue by Emmelie Prophete. A hardcover book resting on a fabric of twisting colors of white, pinks, browns, and oranges. The cover looks like collage that comes together of a Black woman with a golden halo on a deep, blue green canvas.

Maya: I was just flipping through a list of Caribbean authors and saw this!! (decidedly not a romance)

Sneezy: Oh my GOD!

Sarah: That is exquisite design.

Chasing Your Tail by Kate McMurray. An illustrated cover of a black and white cat tripping a woman right into the arms of a hunky pastry chef, holding a plate of cupcakes.

Cover art by Elizabeth Turner Stokes

Amanda: The hero is a pastry chef for a cat cafe and I love the real time photo of a cat trying to trip a human. Seeing a lot more mischievous animals on book covers lately.
