Elizabeth Bleumle on Book Covers
The owner of the Flying Pig in Vermont (and co-author of Shelf-Talker) gathered a pretty amazing post recently on trends in book covers: The Season of Windblown Hair - Or, the Zeitgeist of Book Covers. She broke them into categories such as "florals, branching out, wings," etc.
I hate to think how much time it took to pull this post together, but it is truly fascinating to see how similar covers end up looking, and to see the overall design influences. And I have to admit, I find most of them absolutely beautiful and would be proud to be the author of any one of them. Click on the image above to go see lots more!
