TTT: Book Covers I Would Frame


This week's TTT topic: Book Covers I Would Frame as Pieces of Art

I have actually thought of this a lot. It would be a way to show love for favorite books, and I'm always looking for ways to decorate my bedroom walls. I've never actually done anything beyond think about it of course, but here are some covers I would love to see hanging up in my house.



 Of course. It wouldn't be a list of mine if theses weren't on it. But come on, they are GORGEOUS. Not only is Megan Whalen Turner the best writer there is right now, but she gets amazing covers to go with her writing.

I can stare at the cover of this book for HOURS. It is beautiful. The colors, the detail, how it captures the fairy tale aspect.

 I love the vibrancy in the colors in all the Above World books, but I also love their simplicity and how much they capture of the books in that simplicity.

I love all of the new DWJ covers that have been released in the UK, but those two are probably my favorites. 

I think by my choices you can tell what I don't like on my covers, but is currently the trend.

What about you? Have you ever wanted to frame a book cover as art?

  1. Yes, the new DWJ covers! And I like how we both have Kinuko Craft covers on our lists. :)

    1. I would do a whole wall in Kinuko Craft fairy tale covers. They are all gorgeous.

  2. I love all of these covers! (though I haven't read the Jenn Reese books yet). The covers I actually have on my wall are a Snow White picture book cover that my mother framed in wood shop and a photo of a girl posing as Tinkerbell from a Borders edition of Peter Pan... I wish I had the Dragonsinger prints I remember my parents having in their bedroom when I was young!

  4. Yisssssss MWT yisssssssss! I think the ONLY tiny complain I have about the covers is that Gen doesn't look properly Mediterranean as I picture him. But they're still so, so pretty. Every time I look at my phone case, I sigh happily.
