Megan I didn't really like Fallen and Hush Hush that much, but they do have amazing covers


message 2: by Matthew Ulmer (new)

Matthew Ulmer How did half of these covers beat out the likes of Michael Whelan and John Sullivan?


message 3: by Joyce (new)

Joyce Gorgeous art on the cover of the Grishma book


message 4: by Kelly Anne (new)

Kelly Anne Blount Thanks Joyce! I quite enjoy it too! :) #Grishma #YA #fantasy


message 5: by Javier (last edited Apr 17, 2013 08:50AM) (new)

Javier Miguelez The art of some is good, but the treatment of the type is HORRIBLE, a good cover is a composition of art (if there is) and typography. Most of the covers from this list fail as compositions despite having good art.


message 6: by Amber (new)

Amber Jennell I wonder how many of the book covers on this list where voted up simply because the voter liked the story...

Also, why are people using hashtags? they are useless here.


message 7: by Sarah (new)

Sarah The Ocean at the End of the Lane should be higher up here. Too often Photoshoped covers look remarkably tacky, but it's an example of the real artistry that can be done with Photoshop.


message 8: by L.G.A. (new)

L.G.A. McIntyre It's so hard to decide. Do you vote for the cover that represents a scene from the book, or one that is more atmospheric and representative?
How to decide!?


message 9: by Shadowjac (last edited Dec 02, 2015 05:57AM) (new)

Shadowjac Guys can I remove Lick the Razor? It's a pure yellow cover with no art.

I wish you would as that is a gross title! Can't bear to look at it!

I think the Harry Potter book covers are for the most part very ugly. Those books really need new cover designs.
