Covers I Like

My favorite thing about this cover is the typography of the title. The handwritten flowchart really brings out the fun of the words!

The bold pink and yellow immediately draw your attention! the heavy ink and use of patterns also give a chaotic, unsettling element that works great with the title.

So You've Been Publicly Shamed, published by Riverhead Books

The vast empty space is a brilliant decision. It gives the title a sense of heavy weight that seems even more important when compared to the small size of the trees and figures.

I Refuse, published by Graywolf Press

I adore the colors here, and the flowers are absolutely gorgeous. Random House went through numerous wonderful cover designs before finally deciding on this one. You can view the progression of the design on this post from The Casual Optimist!

Another cover where I love the title typography! The letters connect like roots (Appropriate!). It's a lovely clean design, and the white makes the purples and greens of the food stand out brilliantly (and deliciously).
