Favourite Book Covers VI

It has been almost two years since I last shared with you a few of my favourite book covers. Since then I added to my shelves various books that were not only worthy reads, but whose covers are also a feast for the eyes. All of them are paperback editions, which is unsurprising. I mostly only buy paperbacks, as they are cheaper, lighter, and I have a complicated relationship with dust jackets.

Let’s get a good look at my five new favourite covers!

    I think this selection highlights the importance of a well-thought-out colour palette. Very nice. I also relate to your comment on dust jackets – confusing things that seem to acquire scruffiness, in my view!
