Can we talk about all the pretty book covers? #2

Guess what guys, I found even MORE awesome covers that I wanted to share with you.

  1. A Murder in Time by Julie McElwain – I love the layered look of this cover, with the clouds, text, different cityscapes, and woman all overlapping and interacting in beautiful ways. The muted color scheme and classic serifed font really give this cover an elegant feel.
  2. Join by Steve Toutonghi – I managed to obtain an advance copy of this in March, and have to say the digital version really doesn’t do it justice. The circles are gold and have a subtle sparkle to them. The overall effect is really eye-catching.
  3. The Last Boy and Girl in the World by Siobhan Vivian – I love how the text starts to “bleed” into the water of the illustration, but the water itself is all geometric shapes, with the title and houses layered in.
  4. The Wild Robot by Peter Brown – My favorite part of this one is the hand-painted lettering of the title and author’s name, reminiscent of a camp-site sign. The forest looks completely normal, but the robot and red sun make the scene seem more alien.

Are there any awesome covers that have been revealed lately that I should know about? Or any interesting behind-the-scenes articles? If so, leave a comment so I can check them out.
