Cover Connoisseur is a feature at Books Keep Me Sane which aims to recognize books with pretty and interesting covers. Because let’s face it, we totally judge a book by its cover.
Last June 1 I announced that I will be having a new feature on the blog called Cover Connoisseur and here’s the first post. I hope you like it!
I haven’t read the book but the cover really caught my attention. Here are the things that stood out for me:
Pretty Gold Shoes— I have a weakness for book covers with any fashion pieces on them (i.e. dresses, shoes) and these stilettos are absolutely gorgeous! I love its gold color and I think the sharp heel will come in handy in self-defense when a jerk harasses you. 😀
Swirls – I love the swirls that accent the corners of the cover. I like seeing swirls in book covers and as you can see in my blog’s current header I incorporated swirls with the typography. They liven up the whole design of the cover and also added more feminine vibe to it.
Cute Fonts— I love the combination of the serif and sans serif fonts. I also like the pink-and-gray combination of the font color. Pink is one of my favorite color and it looks absolutely stunning paired with gray or black.
The Palette – I enjoyed making the color pallet of this book! I like the two shades of pink the most. The lemony yellow hue also adds a pop of color and liveliness in the pallet.
The cover has a really chic, cute and feminine vibe to it. It screams “chick-lit” to me and the background’s “creamy” hue adds softness to the picture. There aren’t that much element in the cover itself but it is still very unique and memorable.
