Another month of books, another month of book covers. This month, the weather has begun to allow outdoor displays of jackets, both light and literary. My March favorites included dream paintings, unstable animals, otherworldly miniatures, and more than one unstable animal. (Not pictured: the lion and the lamb.)
I find this cover both whimsical and creepy, and I can’t look away from it. Would it also work as the cover of a horror novel about a pseudonymous writer trapped in his own story? Yes! Honestly, the possibilities are endless (just like those of a blank page)!
I like the nod to Matisse, the joyful colors, and the subtle envelopment of the body and the text. A perfect marriage between words and illustration.
This blanket both elevates and transforms the ubiquitous blob trend. It’s cool and colorful and makes me want to have a drink outdoors with friends.
There is both a deliberateness and a recklessness at work here that I love. The memoir itself is a high-tension act between the comic and the tragic, and the cover’s voice acting sets the scene perfectly.
The texture of this one is so appealing that it’s hard to resist touching my laptop screen.
I would like to live in this book cover – who can I tell?
Beloruset’s collection revolves around the lives of Ukrainian women in the midst of the Russian-Ukrainian war, and this cover suggests to me the idea of life in the midst of ongoing conflict – chaos, confusion and darkness. , but also beauty, as there must always be.
I could never resist a miniature, but adding an element of hallucinatory anti-gravity and a possible portal to parallel universes? Sold in rooms.
I’m obsessed with this spooky Barbie, but you really have to check out the gif version to get the full effect of the static trapped in the code.
The vibes have changed again. This bird is now the mood.
The layering effect of this suggests both nostalgia and escapism. I love how elegantly the feeling of movement is captured here.
Sexy and a little sinister, like a noir fairy tale.
