Cover Crazy (5)

Cover Crazy is a weekly meme hosted by The Book Worms on Mondays.  Its a brand new meme where the idea is to showcase a  beautiful book cover each week. This week I'm crazy about.....
by Antonia Michaelis

What I love about it:

  • The contrast of the red rose with the snowy background. The combination of red, white and black always draws my eye. 
  • This reminds me a lot of the cover of Jane Yolen's Briar Rose and it also sounds very similar in plot as well; Briar Rose was one of my all time favorite books from when I was younger too.
  • I like that the hint of icy blue swirls in the background almost seem like the stem to the rose, yet is more delicate than an actual thorny stem.
  • The stem is then reflected in the font of the title which I love. It is harsh too look at and yet swirls out of the Y in feminine organic loops, emulating the same feeling of a rose.
  • Everything about this cover intrigues me, I couldn't wait to read the synopsis when I saw it.
