There is just something about holding a new, shiny book in your hands. I think it’s because every book has a different feel, a different mood. When I went to make my vlog for YA Rebels, I decided to take a closer look at book covers and their designs. It amazed me how each book had its own distinctive look.
Some book covers have raised lettering, others with font that fits with the time period of the text, some have specific paper that fits with the storyline, while others even have reversible covers.
I also think it’s fun to check out the people who bring those covers to life. A famous illustrator for the cover design of Percy Jackson series is John Rocco. Then there are photographers who do amazing work such as Aurora Crowley who did the photography for SHATTER ME by Taherah Mafi. Check out an interview here with Aurora.
I also have a Pinterest page here that shows all the covers that I really like.
I suppose it’s because I’m a visual person that I love how books come out. Someday I’m sure ebooks will have their own cool additions brought to them. I can’t wait to see what will come out of those in the future.
Check out my vlog on the books that I choose to highlight.
