This week Top Ten Tuesday hosted by The Broke and Bookish is a freebie week, so we can make a book themed top ten list of our choice. I’ve picked an inspiring topic which featured on Top Ten Tuesday a few weeks ago before I started participating but which I enjoyed reading: Top Ten Book Covers I’d Frame As Pieces of Art.
I limited my options to books and editions I own in order to reduce the almost infinite choice.
From this exercise I learned that I prefer book covers with illustrations rather than photographs; I like intricate illustrations in a limited colour palette; and I like book covers which resemble old-fashioned prints. I definitely prefer book covers which don’t feature people’s faces so that you are left free to imagine the characters for yourself.
