Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the awesome people over at The Broke and the Bookish.
Today’s theme is about the books I’d consider as works of art. One of my bookish pet peeves is ugly book covers. Well, not really ugly. You get the point.
I try hard not to judge a book by its cover, but sometimes it’s just too much for the eyes to handle. Luckily, there are a few book covers out there that appease my dilemma.
1. Penguin Drop Caps – aren’t these covers such beauties? If you don’t what these Drop Caps are, they’re basically new (and stunning) editions of beloved classics. If you collect them all (I’m planning to) you get to create your own spine spectrum. Amazing, isn’t it?
2. The Chemical Garden Trilogy by Lauren DeStefano – young-adult dystopian meets high fashion in these gorgeous covers. Love.
3. The Halo Trilogy by Alexandra Adornetto – I’m a sucker for silhouettes. And I think these covers capture the tone/mood for each book.
4. The Madman’s Daughter Trilogy by Megan Shepherd – At first glance it looks like a gothic painting. I love how consistent the covers for this series are. I can’t wait for the last book!
5. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer Trilogy by Michelle Hodkin – I can’t not include these covers for this list. I mean, it’s pure art!
6. Dissonance by Erica O’Rourke – This cover vaguely reminds me of Salvador Dali’s paintings — he’s my favourite artist of all time.
7. Some Quiet Place by Kelsey Sutton – Pretty eerie cover. I love it obviously.
8. The Museum of Intangible Things by Wendy Wunder – Very reminiscent of vintage pop art.
9. September Girls by Bennet Madison – As I mentioned earlier, I’m a sucker for silhouettes. Especially if they’re this pretty.
10. The Merciless by Danielle Vega – All I can think of is: wow.
Which book covers will you hang as pieces of art?
