I’ve been working on a fun confessions-type blog and in writing it, I’ve come to realize I’m kind of a book cover snob. Of all the things right? Sometimes I think I’m 12. But no world, I am not. You need to add a couple decades and that’s a bit closer.
But what do I love? The classics. Something about them – I want to frame each of the covers. So today I claim as book cover love day. I wish such a holiday would allow me a day off, but apparently my company doesn’t go for made up holidays on a whim. Whatevs.
Without further ado, these are the type of covers I want blown up on canvas and all over my library.
After reading this novel (and absolutely loving it), this mysterious and dark cover fits it perfectly. Have you read Rebecca? You need to if you haven’t!!
Maybe I love this because it reminds me of the awesome Disney vintage ride posters at the park and I love Disneyland. And y’all know my love of The Hobbit, so if you toss them together…Win. Plus it’s easy to almost miss Bilbo at the bottom, but when you find him – love!
I haven’t read much Cummings, but I still love the vintage vibe.
Can we first talk about the price? $1.95. Let’s bring these prices back. But this was also the first of the Narnia series I read and while it’s one of the lesser known ones, I loved it!
I’m so glad schools have to read this book because it really is one of the greatest pieces of literature. I think I need to read it again soon.
Only because I love this book.
If this doesn’t scream 1984…
The pipe people! The pipe!
Minus the fact that fahrenheit is probably the hardest word in the English language to spell, I love the book that uses it in the title.
This one gets a shout out based on the simplistic genius of this poster.
Although this cover is a bit creepy, I included it because it fits perfect to the story. Which was straight up loco/depressing if my high school memory serves me correctly.
Please tell me you get this. Please!!
I’m not really sorry for all the Lord of the Rings covers because, I mean, they’re all awesome.
I can’t help but smile every time I see this cover (or cry – stupid spider). But nostalgia at its finest.
I’ve seen this beautiful watercolor around Pinterest and other blogs and I think they are so beautiful. I recently found out they are by the artist Sara Singh (http://www.sarasingh.com/). I want one.
And one more for your viewing pleasure!
So how about y’all? What do you prefer in a book cover?
