Cover Crazy (6)

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 Margie Gelbwasser

What I love about it:

  • The simplicity of the empty swing giving the idea that someone just jumped off of it. Brings back childhood memories but at the same time is kind of ominous as to why they jumped or if they meant to.
  • The muted colors of the trees and grass and the dark gradient scale of the sky in comparison to the only bright color: the red of the swing.
  • The simple font for the title and that none of the words are capitalized, visually appealing.
What cover are you crazy about this week?


  1. I loved the different cover. It's so simple, and the red swing brings happy thoughts from childhood, to laugh.

  2. This cover definitely evokes happy childhood memories. Reminds me of the days when life used to be carefree. *sigh*...

  3. This cover is AWESOME! Good find. I love the way the swing is empty and still swinging.

    It's funny how the above two comments say the cover makes them think of happy memories; to me, the cover looks--as you said--ominous. What happened, what went wrong? LOL!
